The Zimbabwean government says the security forces’ response to this week’s protests in which 15 people have reportedly died is just “a foretaste of things to come”.
CRIMSON TAZVINZWA, AIWA! NO!|The Zimbabwean government says the security forces’ response to this week’s protests in which 15 people reportedly died is just “a foretaste of things to come”.
There is evidently complete political, economic and social meltdown.
A malaise in the country’s laws, rules and order.
Zimbabwe in turmoil
The streets have become no-go areas for civilians due to increased violence perpetrated by both the police and the military. I learn 1 police officer is among 15 people reported killed by military so far. The situation cannot be more dire.
Meanwhile President Emmerson Mnangagwa is at the Kremlin, RUSSIA visiting with President Vladmir Putin to push for military cooperation between their two awkwardly placed countries.
And who is running the country while the chaos and recklessness escalates? Former General Constantine Chiwenga the Vice President; one of the kingpins of the 2017 coupe that removed tyrannic Mugabe from office.
Why are Zimbabweans protesting? Mnangagwa hiked fuel price last week by a whopping 150%.
There has not been any meaningful reactions from the international community regarding the deteriorating political situation in this far flung Southern African country.
No word from ‘BREXIT THE 2ND’; obviously none from ‘MR. MEXICO BORDER WALL’ aka ‘GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN’.
