The leader of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Tendai Biti has noted that security forces were on Wednesday afternoon used to coerce masses into marching against the protesters.

Zimbabwe has been for the past weeks hit by a wave of protesters but the ruling party on Wednesday afternoon organized dozens of youths to march against the protesters.

“The ongoing shenanigans currently unfolding in Harare are obnoxious and unacceptable,” said the top lawyer

Biti revealed that it was now clear that the hand of the military was at play as the failed government was failing to deliver its promises and duties.

“It is self evident that the securocrats are mobilizing coerced lumpen elements to invade the streets of Harare. The army and police were clearly visible as these crowds were forming,” he said.

Biti however said this would not stop the resolve by the masses to fight for their desires.

“Needless to say this a response to the hash tag movement. This is an ill informed knee jerk response to a citizen that is becoming assertive and brazen,” he said.

Efforts to get comments from the Zanu PF spokesperson and the organizer of the march Kudzi Chipanga were fruitless as their phones were not reachable.
