Controversial pressure group #Tajamuka/Sesijikile is planning to roll out demonstrations in protest over the recent hike in the price of bread.
The social activists issued a statement warning that Zimbabweans could be forced to follow the footsteps of the Sudanese and Algerian people.
Algeria and Sudan this month experienced mass protests which forced the respective presidents to relinquish power. In the statement, #Tajamuka/Sesijikile said:
As we announced in our first press conference after the January protests a few days ago, we have begun rolling out another wave of peaceful and non-violent protests against the ill-fated Mnangagwa government and its bad anti-people policies.
We cannot ask Mnangagwa and his illegal government to reduce the price of bread as this is not the root cause of the problem but we ask Mnangagwa to reflect on the untold suffering and the abject poverty he has put the nation through.
We are calling on all and sundry to join Tajamuka in condemning him and his government and call upon them to effectively resolve the economic crisis within a reasonable space of time.
Failure to do so will result in earth shuttering demonstrations reminiscent of the ones we led in 2016 which led to the abdication of former President Robert Mugabe.
