PHOTOS: Latest on MDC protests in Bulawayo
Police officers were seen moving around on horsebacks, water cannons and armoured vehicles.
The much anticipated demonstration did not succeed after the police issued a prohibition order barring citizens from protesting.
The MDC filed a court appeal challenging the order.
