Zimbabwe protest movement pastor says charged by police


Zimbabwean Pastor Evan Mawarire, who organised a ‘stay at home’ anti-government protest last week, said on his Twitter page on Tuesday that police had charged him with inciting violence.

“Pastor Evan Mawarire is being charged with section 36 for inciting public violence and disturbing peace,” a Tweet from Mawarire’s #ThisFlag protest page said.

Another demonstration against President Robert Mugabe’s government is planned on Wednesday and Thursday.
