The Zimbabwe Republic Police says it has not yet cleared the much hyped 16 August anti-Mnangagwa demonstration that have been called by the MDC.

In a statement on Friday the police said,"The ZRP acknowledges receipt of MDC A notification on the intended demonstration on 16/8/19, however the Police reiterates that considerations are still being made on the notification and the official response is yet to be given to the concerned convener."

Earlier this week MDC announced that it will hold marches in the capital on Aug. 16 against corruption, unemployment and power and fuel shortages and a deteriorating economy, the party said in a notice to the police dated Aug. 5.

"The national challenges are a result of a governance and legitimacy crisis arising primarily out of the disputed election of July 2018," national organising secretary Amos Chibaya said in the notice to the police.
