President Emmerson Mnangagwa's administration appears to have switched back to the former President Robert Mugabe's style of governance following the arrest of Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) officials today as the police moved to thwart its demonstration against new financial reforms. "We are a law-abiding government and so is our President", he said. "You and your cohorts will instead leave Zanu PF by the will of the people and this we will do in the coming few weeks as Zimbabweans in general now require new and progressive leadership that is not resident in the past and refuses to accept change", part of President Emmerson Mnangagwa last November enroute to new Zimbabwe.

"This is why he even waited for the courts to decide who won the elections in July, so all those people who want to demonstrate in public should follow the law, they must live by the law like everybody else".

Minister Mathema said the law enforcement agents would not hesitate to bring to book those who want to cause disturbances among peace loving citizens by not following the law.

"In Harare, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) officers arrested ZCTU members including the labour union's leaders, Peter Mutasa and Japhet Moyo, at their offices and detained them at Harare Central Police Station".

The ZCTU had planned national protests against sharp price hikes, a new tax on electronic transactions and daily shortages ranging from fuel to bread.

The labour body yesterday vowed to go ahead with today's protests despite the police banning it on account of fears of a fresh cholera outbreak. Meanwhile, Harare Magistrate Lanzini Ncube on Thursday 11 October 2018 dismissed an application filed by Chinhanu seeking to overturn the ZRP ban of ZCTU's anti-government protest.

Moyo says the ZCTU is not scared for brutal police and army force that may be applied during the one-day protests.
