Zimbabwean protesters took to the streets of Bulawayo on Monday morning. The protests come after Zimbabwe’s government announced a hike in fuel prices of more than 100%.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced an increase of petrol prices from $1.24 a litre to $3.31, with diesel up from $1.36 a litre to $3.11. This came to effect on Sunday, 13 January 2019.
