Secretary for Information Nick Mangwana says the much hyped 31 July mass protests is non-event because it is only centred around Harare Province.

Posting on Twitter, Mangwana said, "Last weekend I had the opportunity to travel to different parts of the country on duty. #Covid19Zim is definitely a concern. Clearly this 31 July conversation is purely a Harare thing."

When asked if the November 2017 was not also concentrated in Harare, mangwana said, "Not true. The Impeachment was being done by every constituency in this country and not the 28 constituencies in Harare."

One the organisers of the eventTransform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume said, "We are getting a lot of support from Zimbabweans who are members of Zanu PF, Zimbabweans in different institutions, civil society, in business, Zimbabweans in the police, Zimbabweans in the military, want us to speak against corruption.

"They are sick and tired of corruption, benefiting only a few but impoverishing the rest of the nation and then for Matemadanda to ignore that and say who ever thinks that corruption is wrong, it's terrible.

"So in another words, he feels he needs to be protected amidst the corruption which is impoverished the nation, this is unfortunate and this is the Zimbabwe we do not want."
