The protest appears to have the support of Zimbabwe’s International Cross Border Traders’ Association and Tajamuka, a protest group that is agitating for change in the country.

President Robert Mugabe’s government is reacting with anger to a growing protests against the alleged corruption and mismanagement in his rule.
