The Movement for Democratic Change’s Youth Assembly has declared August the month of public protests saying this is the only way to press President Robert Mugabe to leave office. They accuse Mr. Mugabe of allegedly running down the country, which was once considered a jewel of Africa.
The government says it is investigating moves by some war veterans to dump President Mugabe amid reports that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has dismissed as “nonsensical” calls for the president to step down for allegedly failing to run Zimbabwe. The state is looking into the origins of a stinging communique issued after the war veterans convened a meeting in which they attacked Mr. Mugabe.
