1/8 The violence & looting witnessed in #Zimbabwe today was not a coincidence,neither was it "spontaneous" As late as Dec 2018, MDC Dep Treasurer Gen, Chalton Hwende announced that his party's 2019 strategy was to roll out protests intended to force out Zanu PF
2/8 And then January came and reports filtered in of some meetings being held at out of town lodges & foreign lands in preparation for the protests. Meanwhile, MDC leaders and members incited citizens to revolt, more or less declaring war
3/8 Given the MDC's documented violent history , it was not surprising that the so-called peaceful Stayaway was revealed to be a pre-planned violence orgy, as shops, service stations, Police cars and homes were burnt by the marauding protesters
4/8 A Police station in Harare was burnt and officers had to flee from protesters assaulting them and pelting them with stones
5/8 A supermarket chain, Choppies, perceived to be linked to Zanu PF, had its branches looted
6/8 Citizens who did not want to take part in the violence were assualted and coerced
7/8 Buoyed by the success of their violent plans, MDC leaders celebrated on social media and egged supporters on today
8/8 The MDC has effectively declared war on Zimbabwe's peace and citizens go to bed shook, saddened and afraid.
