Police cite January violence to quash new demonstration applications

Public demonstrations in Zimbabwe are banned, it appears indefinitely because of the violent protests that rocked the country on the 14th of January after President Emmerson Mnanggwa hiked the prices of fuel.
A letter sent to a Youth Organisation the National Association of Youth Organisations (NAYO) requesting permission to petition parliament the police said, “People are still nursing the effects of 14-16 January demonstrations that resulted in loss of lives and destruction of property.
“Your march be hijacked by some rogue and unruly elements who thrive on destruction of property and not worried about the consequences of their activities.”
