OPPOSITION politician Jacob Ngarivhume, who is leading the July 31 nationwide protests, says the demonstrations will go ahead as Zimbabweans are reeling under corruption whose impact is more ruinous than Covid-19.
The planned protests have received widespread support from a broad cross-section of the population, including civil society, labour unions, Tajamuka/Sesijikile and the MDC-Alliance. However, the government has outlawed the demonstrations, saying they would be in violation of Covid-19 containment regulations.
The media has been awash with reports of looting and corruption perpetrated by public officials and political elites while Zimbabweans wallow in poverty.
