Diaspora prepares for second Free Zim protest

Zimbabweans in the Diaspora are set to gather on Tuesday for the second monthly ‘Free Zimbabwe’ protest, taking place outside South African embassies and consulates around the world.


The protests, being dubbed the 21st Movement, kicked off last month and are going to continue on the 21st of every coming month. This month, the mass protests are coinciding with Robert Mugabe’s 88th Birthday.

The movement has been organised by the MDC-T and its executive branches across the globe, and the demonstrations are targeting South Africa as the mediator in the ongoing political stalemate in Zimbabwe.

Protesters from around the world will be calling on the South African government to help solve the ongoing crisis as well as force ZANU PF and Robert Mugabe to honour the Global Political Agreement (GPA). Petitions with these and other demands will be handed over to embassy and consular staff during the demonstrations.

Tonderai Samanyanga, the MDC-T’s UK and Ireland Chairman, told SW Radio Africa on Monday that the final preparations are underway for the Tuesday protest in London, where Zimbabweans from across the UK will be gathering. He explained that the protestors will first gather outside the Zim embassy before moving to South Africa House.

Meanwhile, similar action is also expected elsewhere in the world, including in South Africa, America and Australia.
