Mawarire loses council election

Zimbabwean pastor Evan Mawarire, who led the #ThisFlag social media protest in 2016 over the economic situation under former president Robert Mugabe, has lost his bid to become a councillor in the capital, Harare.

Mawarire tweeted this message to Jacob Mafume, who won the Mt Pleasant council seat: “With much respect & admiration I congratulate Jacob Mafume ⁦@JMafume⁩of the MDC Alliance on his win of the Mt Pleasant ward 17 council seat. You ran well my friend and I wish you the best as you serve the people of Mt Pleasant & the city of Harare.”
