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.
There is a thug in civilian clothes roaming around with an AK47 (reportedly Bulawayo Road near Kuwadzana). Unclear whether he is really a civilian or military/police in plain clothes, but what is certain is that there is absolutely NO place for this in Zimbabwe. #shutdownZimbabwe pic.twitter.com/AzhVzX8iiD— Doug Coltart ✊🏽🇿🇼 (@DougColtart) January 14, 2019
When people are fed up they take to the streets and that the only language politicians understand ✊🏾 #shutdownZimbabwe— Nomzamo (@tryzamo) January 14, 2019
