Mnangagwa fuel protest update: Angry crowds pour onto Harare, Bulawayo streets, blockade roads

CITIZENS angered by the recently announced fuel prices and the ever-rising cost of living have poured out onto the streets of Harare and Bulawayo, mounting their own blockades by placing rocks and tyres in the roads in an effort to ensure that the national shutdown is a success.

People have called for a national shutdown to protest against the price hike of fuel announced by President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Saturday.

In a statement yesterday, Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Cain Mathema implored Zimbabweans to disregard the social media posts.

“My ministry assures all peace loving citizens and visitors that the Zimbabwe Republic Police has deployed officers in all residential, shopping centres and CBD to conduct patrols, surveillance, stop and search and in the process account for unruly elements who may try to disturb the tranquil environment which is prevailing in the country,” he said.

Early in the morning, tyres were burnt to barricade Kami road in Bulawayo.
