'Sooner or later things are going to come to a head' - MDC

The Movement for Democratic Change has continued to criticize President Emmerson Mnangagwa's regime as protests continue in Bulawayo.

At least six people have been killed and scores wounded as tensions increase over massive fuel price hikes and economic instability.

MDC national executive Nqobizitha Mlilo says the failure of the economy to respond is as a result of the questioned legitimacy of Mnangagwa's presidency.

What otherwise started as a complaint around the increase in fuel prices will very soon degenerate to a call for Mnangagwa to resign. In him having resigned...only then will a product of a legitimate political system established out of an election, can a Zimbabwean solution be found.

Mlilo says Mnangagwa has remained silent on the matter.

There is an attempt to stifle communication by cutting off the internet, so the response of the state has been one that is true to its character - militarised.
