A COMMUNITY group has claimed that a pastor and three activists were arrested in Chegutu Saturday for allegedly holding a voter education meeting.

The Center for Community Development said Sunday the four were campaigning for people to register as voters for the referendum and national elections later in the year.

They were detained in police cells in Chegutu on unspecified charges after the meeting. Under sweeping security laws, political gatherings require police clearance.

Another two rights and democracy groups have been raided by police in the past week.

The arrests come after President Robert Mugabe announced March 16 as the date for a referendum on the country’s new constitution.

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC-T party has called for the security laws to be urgently repealed ahead of polling.
