Zimbabweans protest at two years of Mugabe lies

bob n fam

Zimbabwean exiles are to protest outside the Zimbabwe Embassy in London on Saturday 19th September at the failure of Mugabe’s Zanu PF regime to honour the power-sharing agreement with the opposition Movement for Democratic Change.

The occasion marks the expiry of a 30-day deadline set last month by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) for the implementation of outstanding issues in the agreement, which was signed two years ago this month. Mugabe has treated the deadline with contempt, confident that SADC will not put muscle behind its ultimatum.

Demonstrators wearing mourning bands will carry placards to the nearby South African High Commission demanding that President Zuma pressures Mugabe to accept his obligations and allows freedom for Zimbabwe.

The demonstration is organised by the Zimbabwe Vigil which has been protesting outside the Zimbabwe Embassy since 2002 in support of demands for free and fair elections in Zimbabwe.

Date: Saturday 19th September 2010 from 2 – 6 pm.
Venues: Zimbabwe Embassy and South African High Commission, Trafalgar Square.
Contact: Rose Benton (07970 996 003 / 07932 193 467), Dumi Tutani (07960 039 775),
