MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has called for mass protests against what he calls “the deteriorating state of affairs”, saying the army cannot shoot dead everyone if the entire country rises up in protest.
Chamisa, who previously called for protests but failed to show up on the day, said the socio-economic and political crises in the country were a strong signal enough to make the citizenry throng to the streets in anger.
Police have previously blocked multiple attempts by the Chamisa-led party to take to the streets, citing previous cases of violence which led to deaths of both civilians and police officers.
Critics who say Chamisa has failed to lead from the front have valid reasons to point at.
In August last year, Chamisa issued a live video on Facebook calling for supporters to throng the streets adding that he would lead from the front, but was in no show the next day as supporters got bashed by police in Harare.
