The Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition says it is appalled by the continued weaponization of the judiciary to clamp down on dissenting voices of the youth. The Coalition says it is quite apparent that the State has adopted persecution by the prosecution as a tool to silence and victimize opposition and civil society activists. Political and Social Commentator Setfree Mafukidze, meanwhile says continued arrests are part of a ploy to decimate the opposition while instilling fear among opposition supporters.
