The Tajamuka Sesijikile Campaign group said it was demanding the resignation of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, and the five-day protest would be peaceful.

“We do not anticipate any death or killing, as people will peacefully sit at home to register their disquiet over the escalating political and economic crisis,” Promise Mkwananzi, the leader of the group said in a video published by VOA Zimbabwe. BBC News
