The vendors, led by Sten Zvorwadza, staged a demonstration at Town House. Zvorwadza is the chairperson of the National Vendors Union of Zimbabwe.

According to several reports as riot police drove away with the arrested protestors including Zvorwadza, a large crowd of people demanding their release was dispersed using tear gas.

Last month Zvorwadza led a dramatic protest at the Rainbow Towers hotel against Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko’s nearly two year stay at the luxury resort. Nehanda Radio
