Chapter 2 Movement is a watchdog founded to safeguard and ensure that the National Objectives as enshrined in chapter 2 of the country's constitution are adhered to and respected.

We believe that every Zimbabwean has a right to protest, a right to voice their concerns and a right to be heard. Our members have requested that we hold an urgent meeting to discuss the proposed Shutdown Zimbabwe initiated by Team Pachedu on Twitter.

and other Team Pachedu members personally liable for the shutdown Zimbabwe protest they have initiated, they should also be held liable for any loss or damage of property because most insurance does not cover protests and shutdowns.
