Mzembi is thought to be the first Zimbabwean Minister to visit the UK since the disputed July 31 elections which kept Mugabe in power.
Vigil Co-ordinator Rose Benton said: ‘Mzembi presents himself as the reasonable face of Mugabe’s Zanu-PF mafia. But he cannot distance himself from the ruination that Mugabe has brought upon Zimbabwe . . . the poverty, starvation, despair, the enslavement of the people to Chinese colonisers’.
Demonstrators will greet him with posters such as: ‘Who poisoned the elephants?’, ‘Who is destroying the forests?’ and ‘Who is stealing the diamonds?’
Date: Friday, 8th November 2013
Times: Mzembi is due to speak between 12.30 and 1.30 pm.
The demonstration will take place from 12 noon to 1 pm.
