Tense situation in Harare as protests erupt in Highfields: Vids. Sources close to the development suggest there is a combination of opposition supporters who have been angered by the recent government intervention in the court assisted leadership change in their party MDC Alliance and hungry citizens who haven’t received any government assistance during the lockdown.
A flash of protests has begun in the high-density suburb of Highfields as angry citizens and opposition parties sing “povo yaramba” song. Zimbabwe’s main opposition party MDC Alliance has been under siege from another party MDC-T that is believed to be backed by the ruling Zanu PF government. The smaller party assumed control of the bigger MDC Alliance party after the country Supreme Court controversially directed the party to revert to 2014 structures before the split.
The High Court also upheld a decision by the MDC-T to recall MPs from the MDC Alliance. The developments were carried out during the national lockdown to avert protests.
Zimbabweans have also been angered by the lack of concern from the government since the Coronavirus pandemic started. The country’s Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube lied that they had paid the vulnerable people through a sophisticated algorithm. The lies were only exposed by the country’s social welfare Minister who admitted the government had not disbursed COVID-19 aid.
Similar protests also happened in Warren Park resulting in the arrest of MDC Alliance youth leader Tererai Obey Sithole and abduction of other female opposition leaders such as Harare West legislator Joana Mamombe.
