Talking about what led to the protests, Dr Mano said: “The problems in Zimbabwe have been deepening and worsening because of the fuel hikes which are also leading to inflation, high prices in a situation where there is massive unemployment.”

Highlighting the importance of the government asking questions and finding out what exactly happened, he concluded: “The austerity measures they are pushing forward, they seem to be rapid and they are incentivising ordinary people. And that has led to other countries to support them.”
