Thousands of Zimbabweans on Thursday, April 14 took to the streets of the capital city Harare to protest against the continued reign of the president.
The protest, which was initiated by the main opposition party, Movement for Democratic Change, had about 10,000 people in attendance.
Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change declared at the protest that the citizens were clamouring for fair elections in the country and not a revolution.
Tsvangirai had contested against Mugabe in 2002, 2008 and 2013.
In 2008, he got more votes in the general elections than Mugabe but did not get enough to win, according to the country’s electoral oversight body.
He said: “We are not demanding an overthrow of the government… We are demanding a dignified exit for the tired Mugabe.”
“It’s time Mugabe listens to the voice of the people. The people shall liberate themselves.”
