In an interview with The Herald yesterday, Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Cain Mathema warned demonstrators saying they should follow legal procedures or risk prosecution.

This comes after reports that the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) wants to defy a police order and demonstrate against Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube’s 2% per dollar tax. Said Mathema:

…If anybody does not want to follow the law of demonstrations or meetings, the law will come down heavily on them. We want everybody to participate legally, lawfully and peacefully in unity and in a patriotic way as Zimbabweans.
