Zimbabwe is undergoing social and political transformation. A number of social movements created in the country (e.g #ThisFlag, #Tajamuka and #ResistZimbabwe) encouraging Zimbabweans to speak out their grievances against the government of Robert Mugabe. Mugabe had been leading the Zimbabwean government since 1980 and his rule has been characterised by heavy handedness on those opposing his rule and policies. The security sector has been used in the country to suppress opposing voices. In the current climate where Citizens are increasinlgy demanding better performance of the government, the state is responding by using more force upon its citizens raising legitimate demand. The crackdown on Zimbabweans expressing their voices is resulting in many activists being unlawfully detained. Even when these activists are charged many cannot affort bail. These activists are subjected to brutality in filthy holding cells and are not fed.
Therefore, this fundraiser is an appeal to Zimbabweans in the diaspora and Zimbabwean friends to help these activists in any way possible. Your help will go a long way in helping Zimbabwe in liberating itself. New Zimbabwe is on the horizon and your assistance will bring finality to the cause---!!! Atsunya arwa-!
