Following the Barbaric attack on the party leadership in Highfield, SADC accepted that indeed there is a crisis in Zimbabwe. The reality shown by the beating of President Morgan Tsvangirai and the entire MDC leadership who were attending a Save Zimbabwe prayer meeting on this day in 2007 proved to every sane mind that Zanu Pf leadership is not only a dictator but a ruthless enemy of human rights.
6 Years down the line ZANU PF has not changed its evil behavior and continues to arrest and harass human rights activists and everyone who is against ZANU PF misrule.
Of great importance to the Youth Assembly is the continued persecution of the Assembly President Leader Solomon “Mandela ” Madzore and 30 others.
Madzore together with the 28 MDC members today spend their day in court. National Executive member Last Maengahama, Yvonne Musarurwa, Rebecca Mafikeni, Tungamirai Madzokere, Simon Mapanzure have been in Remand for close to two years.
False allegations of murdering a cop who died at a popular pub in Glenview have been laid against 31 but the state has failed beyond doubt to prove their case.
Edmore Nyazamba representing the state has continued to buy time to ensure the 5 remain in custody.
Zimbabweans however have the chance to choose a destiny that breaks the chains of a 33 year old autocratic rule by Mugabe.
On the 16th of this month the nation should vote YES for a new Constitution and do away with the one Mugabe amended infinite times.
This new pact will move some steps towards ensuring respect for human rights and rule of law in the country. It will also ensure that we move from government notices to government policies.
Chihuri and friends have been harassing Zimbabweans for owning cranking radios, that will stop.
The MDC will ensure that there is Peace, Progress, Freedom and Justice in the country. Arrests of innocent people like Jestina Mukoko stops. What happened on the 11th of March 2011 must be an issue of the past.
The Assembly urges all the young people to register and vote wisely, this is the chance to make the right choice that will ensure political and economical transformation.
Together to end,building a youth with a difference.
