ZCTU Leaders Receive Letters with Live Bullets

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) President Peter Mutasa and Secretary-General, Japhet Moyo today received letters from unidentified people that had bullets in it.

The letters were warning them not to organize a stay away on 22 July 2019. The letters threatened to kill the two and harm their families. The writers of the letter said ‘we have hired mercenaries to deal with you once and for all – unless you stop what you are planning.’

The ZCTU is taking these threats seriously and we are worries that our leaders and not safe. However, we believe the threats are part and parcel of efforts to intimidate the ZCTU leaders from discharging their duties. The police will be notified of the incident.
