We are not afraid of Zanu-PF, Tsvangirai says

15 April 2016, 21:31

Harare - The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) reportedly brought the capital Harare to a standstill on Thursday when party supporters and their leader Morgan Tsvangirai demonstrated against President Robert Mugabe's misrule.

According to NewsDay, a more determined Tsvangirai together with his wife, Elizabeth, and other party leaders led the demonstration from the front.

Reports claimed that the march was the biggest that the country had seen in more than a decade.

The last time opposition parties held demonstrations in the land locked southern African county, a number of activist were brutally assaulted by the state police.

Tsvangirai told his supporters that this was just the beginning of a series of planned marches across the country.

"This is the beginning of many demonstrations to come. We in the MDC are not afraid of the Zanu-PF regime. I want to tell you young people here, don’t be afraid, the demonstrations we are holding are for your benefit, it’s about your future," Tsvangirai was quoted as saying.

However, according to the state owned  Herald newspaper, the march was attended by drunkards and rogue young people who were bent on damaging people's properties.

The report claimed that a number of party supporters vandalised property.

The march came a day after a high court ruling instructed the police to allow the demonstration, following an urgent application by the opposition after police had  earlier refused to allow it, citing shortages of manpower.

See below some of the reaction on social media.

Even a senior official from the ruling party dismissed the march, saying that it was against the spirit of celebrating the country’s independence on April 18.
