Media Advisory from the Zimbabwe Vigil – 16th February 2015

 

Zimbabwean diaspora groups are joining forces in London on Saturday 21st February to demand that the Mugabe regime steps down to allow a peaceful end to the economic and political crisis in Zimbabwe which has caused massive unemployment and widespread poverty.

 

The occasion is Mugabe’s 91st birthday which comes at a time when his physical and mental decline has become an international joke even as he assumed the chairmanship of the African Union.  

 

‘Robert Mugabe’s last birthday in office’ is the theme of the protest, which has been organised by Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC. The gathering will be addressed by people including Wilbert Mukori of the Zimbabwe Social Democrats who says: ‘People must understand that doing nothing is no longer an option; it is doing nothing that has led the nation into this mess and doing nothing will leave only one way out – a violent revolutionary route’.   

 

The organisations taking part are: the Zimbabwe Vigil and its associates: Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe (ROHR) and Zimbabwe Yes We Can, MDC-T UK (also USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa), Zimbabwe African People’s Union UK (ZAPU-UK), Occupy Africa Unity Square (OAUS UK), Zimbabweans United for Democracy (ZUNDE), Zimbabwe Social Democrats and the Swaziland Vigil.

 

While we protest outside the Embassy, Mugabe will apparently be tucking into elephant steaks at a birthday party at the Victoria Falls. We understand that Zanu PF caterers have ordered two elephants to satisfy the jumbo appetite of the incompetent and corrupt Mugabe Mafia.
