Zimbabwe: Pastor Evan Mawarire now with CID Harare

Pastor-Evan-Mawarire

THE preacher behind last week’s ‘stay-away’ anti-government protests, Evan Mawarire this morning went with his lawyer to Harare central police station after being summoned.

This comes a day before more planned mass action to force President Robert Mugabe to address the country’s  economic problems.

Yesterday Mawarire posted a video message on his site saying he had been called by police in Harare but had not been told the reason why police wanted to talk to him.

“The police called to see me this morning and I will be going there because we have not broken any law,” Mawarire told journalists yesterday.

Mawarire and his #ThisFlag social media-based movement organized the biggest strike against Mugabe’s government since 2005 last week, shutting down most businesses in the country.

This morning Mawarire posted pictures of himself going into the police station. “I am now at CID Law and Order at Central Police. I am going strong and healthy. Pray for me,” he said.
