AMID fears violent clashes and a backlash from the government, the opposition MDC has put in place elaborate security measures to ensure its planned march set for August 16th goes without incident.

In a statement Sunday the Nelson Chamisa led opposition party said it will put in place hundreds of marshals and security cameras in order to flush out would be trouble makers.

MDC spokesperson Daniel Molokele claimed the opposition has been made aware of plans by State agents to hijack the protests.

"Digital cameras will be used to film the entire march to ensure that any planted elements trying to disrupt the peaceful march will be fully recorded.

"This is meant to ensure that the people's Free Zimbabwe march is not just guaranteed to be peaceful, but also to be resounding success," Molokele said.

"In particular, hundreds of peace marshals will be deployed."

Chamisa's spokesperson Nkululeko Sibanda said on the date of the planned demos they will have eyes everywhere.

"Here on going forward, we will put strong eyes everywhere, army no killing people because you will be caught," said Sibanda.

"We will deploy technology to identify military cars, take images of army personnel. You can't hide, don’t take stupid orders, serve and protect! Thats your oath."

Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander Phillip Valerio Sibanda recently said the military would not allow the country to degenerate into anarchy.

The police say they are yet to clear the MDC Alliance to demonstrate in what promises to be the mother of protests against President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
