Mugabe’s supporters march against protests
Thousands of supporters of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe marched to the ruling ZANU-PF party’s headquarters on Wednesday in a show of solidarity following anti-government protests this month.
On July 8, a ‘stay away’ protest movement led by church minister Evan Mawarire shut down most businesses, government offices, schools and hospitals in the biggest act of public defiance against 92year old Mugabe in a decade.
Mugabe has said the protests were being sponsored by foreign states and urged citizens to support his government.
Many of those marching in support of Mugabe were members of the ruling ZANUPF.
