Mawarire also revealed that the party which was endorsed by former President Robert Mugabe will organise a million man march to demonstrate against Mnangagwa’s Government which he said is a product of a coup. Said Mawarire:
We will also make a Constitutional Court application challenging the legality of the government. We have to unite as Zimbabweans and show the world that what happened in Zimbabwe was a coup. What needs to be done is action on the ground here in Zimbabwe…we are going to demonstrate against the illegality of this government we are going to mobilise people onto the streets. We are setting in motion various political and legal processes and we are also mobilising our people to test and to challenge the legitimacy of the junta even in the streets. If you believed that Mugabe should have gone because you had mobilised 800,000 people at Zimbabwe Grounds, we are going to mobilise a million people and put them onto the streets of Harare. If any President is no longer liked or wanted by a million-plus people, he should go. So, we are going to mobilise a million people in the streets of Harare and maybe see Emmerson Mnangagwa go with his scarf.
