The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have given public sector workers permission to march against unsustainable salaries on Wednesday.
In a notice written to the Apex Council of public sector unions, Police Commander for Harare Central District, Oscar Mugomeri warned against a violent demonstration saying that they have a right to stop it. The letter read in part:
The regulating authority still reserves the right to stop the gathering should it turn out to a public order threat or violent. Police will monitor.

Meanwhile, the government has invited the Apex Council to a meeting that will be held this Tuesday to give feedback on unions’ demand for workers to be paid U.S. dollar-indexed salaries, the union said.
Workers say that they are now incapacitated to execute their duties and responsibilities as their salaries have been eroded by inflation.
