Businessman and publisher, Trevor Ncube, says protesting Zimbabweans will not be threatened by the warning from government to desist from social media abuse.
According to reports, the Zimbabwe government has also blocked the Whatsapp service to its citizens as the country’s citizens heeded calls for the national shutdown.
Citizens are protesting against recent laws on cross-border trade, as well as continued economic hardships and alleged mismanagement by government.
Ncube says the message will not impact the ongoing revolt in Zimbabwe.

We have found our voices. We have started speaking out. We have started standing up. And nobody is going to take that away from us.— Trevor Ncube, businessman and publisher
