The Protest that was never be ….
On the eve of 15th of August, a day before the Harare demonstration, the Zimbabwe Republic Police issued a notice prohibiting the demonstrations in Harare. The prohibition notice was based on the Public Order and Security Act (POSA). This is ironic because the repeal of POSA is part of the political reforms that the demonstrations were calling for. Now it was being used to ban the demonstration, confirming precisely its draconian nature.
