Speaking to Talk Radio 702’s Koketso Sachane‚ Pastor Evan Mawarire said he had started the #ThisFlag movement a month and a half ago to get his countrymen to unite against “rampant and runaway corruption by government and government ministers”
“We have called for a complete shutdown of the country today in protest of the government that has completely failed to look after its citizenry‚ and failed to listen to the demands of its citizenry‚” he said of Wednesday’s protest.
He also said the government had failed to “deal with injustices and deal with poverty”. “…We just said‚ ‘Enough is enough’. we will take a day out to deliver our message to government for them to know that its citizens were serious about having a Zimbabwe that actually works
