I WOULD like to congratulate the ZRP for a quick reaction in arresting the perpetrators of violence.
It is inhuman and very much unAfrican to attack and injure someone for his/her belief.
217;s attackers should, as happened, be arrested and punished. Well done to Police Commissioner Augustine Chihuri and his spokesperson Andrew Phiri for the timely reaction in bringing to book such undesirable elements in our society.
However, I would like to urge the police to act with the same speed in accounting for other well-known culprits who did not only attack, but killed some innocent souls expressing their feelings.
In case Chihuri has forgotten, some crimes were committed way back in 2000, yet the culprits still roam around free.
I am referring to hooligans who forced a Zvishavane man to sit on an electric stove and the well-known Kitsiyatota and his CIO colleague who murdered Tichaona Chiminya and Talent Mabika in Buhera, just to mention a few.
I implore Chihuri to show the efficiency he has done on the Stevenson case. Crime remains crime regardless of who commits it.
If the attackers of Stevenson warranted armed police to man the Mabvuku road, what of mhondi chaidzo nhai vaChihuri (real murderers) who are still walking around free?
Should we cohabit with murderers? What would we say when the so-called enemies of the state start claiming there is selective application of the law in Zimbabwe?
