The Zimbabwe government says it will not stop arresting human rights and opposition activists, describing them as preliminary law breakers.

Over the past few weeks Zimbabwe has witnessed several arrests of many opposition activists mainly MDC Alliance members as well as journalists on different charges.

The justice minister, Ziyambi Ziyambi says activists should learn to live with others citizens.

“These saw called opposition activists if they break the rules, the police will arrest. They will not look at him or her and say this is an activist of MDC or whatever party,” said Ziyambi Ziyambi.

“They must obey our laws and if they do that we will co-exist in a peaceful manner,” he added.

The main opposition party, MDC Alliance has previously recorded a high number of activists and some of its officials who were arrested the past few months.

Member of Parliament for Harare West Costituency, Joana Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri, Netsai Marova, Fadzayi Mahere, Job Sikhala, and Haruzivishe Makomborero are some of the officials and activists that were arrested in the past few months.

Meanwhile, journalists have been arrested before and these include award winning journalist Hopewell Chinono who was arrested three times in 6 months.

The list also includes New York Times journalist, Jeffrey Moyo who was released on bail few days ago.
