Ngadziore release protest: Impala says face the right people


As the pressure to release incarcerated student leader Takudzwa Ngadziore grows, Impala Car rental legal advisor, Jivas Mudimu, has urged the students to face the right people.

This comes as social media was yesterday set ablaze by pictures and videos of university and college students demonstrating and threatening to shut down Impala Motor Spares in Harare in solidarity with their colleague who is currently in remand prison.

Ngadziore was arrested last month by police for public violence and the case is still pending in court.

The company lawyer Mudimu said the students who have a right to demonstrate should face the right people so that their grievances can be heard.

He said the company handed over the documents to the police after they requested for them.

“We handed the file to the police after they asked for it. We are surprised to see people saying we gave false information. All we are doing is to cooperate with the authorities in making sure that perpetrators are brought to book,” he said.

“There is no reason why they should targeting a vehicle spares workshop when they know who has Ngadziore.

“After all, the company is on record clearly stating the role it has played to date in cooperating with the law enforcement agents in the alleged abduction of Tawanda Muchehiwa.”

“It would in this case be fair for the students to confront those in power instead of a well-meaning corporate which is already fighting to stay afloat as the economy continues to shrink, providing jobs and sustaining families.

“There is nothing more the company can do besides cooperating with the authorities and law enforcement agencies who are handling the matter.”

On Thursday the students tried to shut down Impala Motor Spares in the capital.
