31 July Protests Organiser Receives Death Threats

President of Transform Zimbabwe (TZ), Jacob Ngarivhume, who is also the organiser of the planned July 31 anti-corruption protests, said he has received deaths threats from suspected State actors.

Ngarivhume has accused State agents of having sent the threats, saying it is sickening for the government to pretend to care about coronavirus while it is threatening to eliminate him and his family. Ngarivhume posted on Twitter:

When I proposed a national demonstration I knew the risks. But it is sickening for the state to pretend to care about COVID 19 lives yet send me messages threatening to kill me and my family.

Speaking out against corruption is not a crime. It is certainly not a crime deserving death. As a people, we have lived in fear for too long. There is something seriously wrong when citizens live in fear.

Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com over the weekend, Ngarivhume said he was unfazed by threats issued by the Zanu PF youth league to disrupt the protests.

He insisted that the planned protests will be peaceful and it was in fact, the Zanu PF youths who were planning to cause violence on the day.

  1. That is typical Zanu PF DNA. They are in power because they force citizens to support them. What is wrong with people protesting against a failing government?? The povo has endured hardships for a very long time. We thought that ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God’. The people have had enough suffering, no jobs, poor/no medical care, not enough food, poor education, poor transport infrastructure, everything is expensive. How many people have died because of lack of food and medical care? Is Covid19 the only killer around? Why are they all medical tourists? Who is supposed to make sure that our hospitals are well equipped? Why are they in government if they can not address the people’s concerns? The sanctions are giving them a reason to hide behind a finger. Was not Ian Smith on sanctions and at the same time fighting a war? How come he managed to bust them? Why not do the same? For Zimbabwe’s case, I have grown to dislike democracy, the wrong men will occupy the offices and make everyone else suffer. Their claim to be constitutionally voted into power is now costing the whole country.

  2. Zim is a dectorial state.zim is far away from democracy.opposition campaighn for reforms first,NO REFORMS NO ELECTION.
