Mnangagwa Vows To Crush Protests

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that government is set to come up with measures to outlaw violent demonstrations in the country, as happened in January this year.

While addressing the 111th Zanu PF central committee meeting in Harare on Friday, Mnangagwa said:

I am assuring the party that government is putting in place measures to ensure that the illegal, criminal and divisive elements of January 14 to 16 disguised as protesters will never happen again.

The government will take stern measures against any violence in this country. We will not tolerate any violence at all. Those who want to demonstrate must do it peacefully and that is allowed by the Constitution.

Those who become violent and destructive, destroying property and the lives of our people, the government says no and it is no and we know how to implement no.

Countrywide protests broke out in January after Mnangagwa announced a hike in fuel prices of over 150%.

A government brutal crackdown on the protests, which had become destructive in some places, resulted in the death of 17 people with hundreds seriously injured and over a thousand arrested.
