This morning NewsDay ran a story that said police have given the green light for government workers to demonstrate for higher wages in what is seen as an acid test for President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s tolerance to dissent.
“The Apex Council and ordinary membership will participate in the protest. The march will start from the Public Service Association at 10am to Kaguvi Building, where a petition will be handed over to the Minister of Labour or whoever is representing her.“ – David Dzatsunga.
The story sparked reactions from online readers. Below are some of the comments that we curated from our social media platforms and website
