Let’s all shut down’ Zimbabwe – Mawarire




Freed pastor Evan Mawarire is not letting government off the hock as he has issued fresh call to shutdown Zimbabwe.

Mawarire was released Wednesday evening after being detained for organising a nationwide strike last week.

According to the British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC) Thursday report.


Mawarire quickly called on people to keep protesting. “Let’s all shut down and send a message to our government that enough is enough, we need changes in very simple things, in very simple areas.

And our protest – non-violent, non-inciting, stay-at-home, is the best because it is within the confines of the law”.

He said the #ThisFlag movement’s goal was to “get as many citizens as possible involved in nation-building”.

“Every Zimbabwean who does not participate is robbing us of a great opportunity to add to the momentum of where our country is going” he is quoted saying Thursday.

More than 1000 people gathered at Rotten Row magistrate court Wednesday and he briefly addressed the crowd soon after release.
