President Robert Mugabe has again issued another chilling warning on Pastor Evan Mawarire saying he was inviting real trouble.

The latest warning comes as Mawarire of the #ThisFlag movement has indicated that he was not returning to Zimbabwe anytime soon.

Mawarire has been in South Africa for close to two weeks spending most of his time conducting media interviews.

According to media reports from South Africa, Mawarire said he was left "shaken and scared" by his arrest.

As a result, he said he resolved to stay in South Africa, depending on the situation in Zimbabwe.

Today, Mugabe told thousands of war veterans that Mawarire should be careful.

Below is his statement:

I want to warn this Mawarire and others very strongly that ZANU PF will not tolerate any nonsense, any nonsense that is done in name of religion.

So keep to your religious side and we will respect you.

Once you begin to interfere with our politics you are causing real trouble, real trouble.

We know how to deal with our enemies who have been trying all along to bring about regime change in the country.

We have the means to defend and protect our hard won freedom, that's crucial to us.
