Supporters of #ThisFlag movement have again been let down by their fellow countrymen as #ShutDownZimbabwe 3.0 seems to have hit another snag.

One social commentator, Tendaishe Changamire, said that as long as public transport is available it will be very difficult for a stayaway to be successful.

She said the first #ShutDownZimbabwe stay away was successful mainly because public transport operators had gone on strike that same day.

Some alleges that, "there was never a shutdown instigated by the MDC-T or #thisflag, it was a Kombi/Civil Servants strike."

Njabulo Dhlamini concluded that, this means for a strike to be a success Zimbabweans need to mobilise kombis and civil servants as they are the 'King Makers.'

Police in all major cities this morning deployed anti-riot cops with water cannons in anticipation to stop any kind of protests.
