Zimbabwean security officials on Friday shut down the offices of the Combined Harare Residents Association, sources in the civic organization said.
CHRA spokesman Precious Shumba said dozens of plain-clothes police surrounded the group’s offices in downtown Harare. The group staged a demonstration Tuesday at the offices of the non-elected commission that governs Harare, and he said since then members have been receiving threatening phone calls and visits from police.
Shumba told reporter Patience Rusere of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that security officials warned of further trouble if civic activists continued their activities.
