Some Zimbabwean church organisations say they have finally decided to add their voices to the problems affecting the nation by taking to the streets in Harare on Thursday to protest against the current social and economic problems facing the southern African country.

The march is organized by Zimbabwe Devine Destiny Church while organisations such as Prayer Network of Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Christian Alliance and Christian Voices will be expected to join the protest.

Zimbabwe Divine Destiny Church leader Bishop Ancelimo Magaya told VOA Studio 7 that they want to press the government to admit that it has failed and to allow for a national dialogue.

Bishop Magaya said they also have plans to petition parliament to call for a motion to impeach President Robert Mugabe.

He said they have informed the police about their intended march and will go ahead as planned despite the fact that police have not yet responded to their request to stage it.
