Former President of Botswana Ian Khama responds to Zimbabwe 's abuse by police

Has the photo been taken in Rhodesia under minority rule or in Zimbabwe under majority rule?

Throughout the rule of the white minority in Rhodesia by Ian Smiths, police used to lock down the black majority and suppress it. A successful liberation war was waged to free that majority and gain independence from oppression.

Now forty years later and under majority rule, little seems to have changed for Zimbabwe 's long-suffering people but the county name and that of its members. Free Zimbabwe!

#Zimbabwelivesmatter has taken the world by storm as prominent political figures and celebrities protested the violence of government against Zimbabweans. Before an anti-corruption protest planned for July 31, Zimbabwean arrested award-winning journalist Hopewell Chin'ono and protest mastermind Jacob Ngarihvume through its armed forces.

Hopewell Chin'ono exposed Covid-19 procurement corruption racket that shook Zimbabwe's political leadership and resulted in the expulsion of the country's health minister.

South African opposition leaders Julius Malema and Mmusi Maimane expressed their fears about the situation in Zimbabwe, a movement that South African celebrities have been endorsing.

Mmusi Maimane asked the President of South Africa and the President of the African Union Cyril Ramaphosa for "blue ticking" the situation in Zimbabwe.

Since then, Zimbabwe's adamant president Emmerson Mnangagwa has vowed to uproot "bad apples," which cause destabilization in the nation.
