Prominent Bulawayo activist Josphat Mzaca Ngulube says he will be leading Zimbabweans to stage a massive demonstration in Bulawayo on the 17th of July.

The demonstration which will be held from Hyper to Joshua Nkomo's statue will start at 1 PM and end at 4 PM.

On the Wednesday 17th of July I Josphat Mzaca Ngulube will lead a demonstration in Bulawayo CBD from 1 pm to 4 pm. We are not shutting down anything but we want to air out our grievances to the Government led by Emmerson Mnangagwa. We will start from Hyper and end at our now freedom place which is the Joshua Mqabuko Statue where solidarity speeches will be read and final press statement which will summarise the reasons of the demonstration, suggestions to the government and the way forward, We expect the government to respond by the implication of our suggestions as citizens of Zimbabwe!

If the government fail to respect and bow to our call we will not hesitate to abandon our houses and flood the street peaceful!

There is no one who can liberate Zimbabwe better than us as her citizens! Zimbabwean s the future of Zimbabwe is in our hands and we only live once! The time of being afraid of arrest killings it's over it's now or never!

Beautiful friends and comrades, we are dying in numbers like we are in a war and indeed we are in an economic war. Rise up my brothers and sisters.we are losing a lot of people every and everywhere in our country. People are dying of hunger cold lack of medication, Stresses, accident the list is endless! We can liberate ourselves by abandoning our homes for just a week we cause everything to a standstill! In all towns!

It's better they shoot 100 of us and liberate our country instead of losing 100000people by the year end! People are perishing with this economic crisis we are facing just visit any mortuary in town and check how we are packed?

There is no one else besides us who can help us in this disaster!

The call is for every one Christian Moslems, Politicians from all Political parties, students and lecturers!

No violence no burning of Tyres

17 July 2019 just write a placard what you want this government to change or improve and demonstrate. If police throw teargases to provoke you don't retaliate! Stand Wii your Placards and cry standing whether ever you be!

Peaceful demonstration is more powerful than a violent one! As hungry people, we do have the energy to fight with police and soldiers!

United we stand Divided we fall!
