The situation is tense but calm in Zimbabwe following a nationwide protest that forced businesses, schools and other entities to shut down on Wednesday. Organizers of the protest against the deteriorating situation in the country have given the government up to Wednesday to address their grievances.

Some people, who were arrested in national protests in Zimbabwe yesterday, have appeared in court while others are still being sought by lawyers. They are said to be in police detention.

Organizers of yesterday’s national shutdown, Tajamuka Sesijikile Campaign, today gave President Robert Mugabe until the end of August to give the nation a timeline for the resolution of the country’s economic crisis. The group says President Mugabe should also tell the nation about when he is likely to step after allegedly failing to properly run Zimbabwe.
