Zimbabwe: Protests expected across the country

Labour federation, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions, has reportedly called for a nationwide protest for Thursday, October 10, according to News24.

This follows the country’s finance minister, Mthuli Ncube, who announced a 2% tax on electronic money transfers last week.

Last Friday, Ncube reviewed the tax, exempting transactions below $10 (R146) and capping it at $10 000 (R146 000)

Police have said that all protests will be stopped in light of the current cholera outbreak.

Travellers are advised to avoid all public demonstrations.
