President Robert Mugabe says civil unrest in Zimbabwe won’t force him step down or call early elections as protestors clash with police in Harare.
President Mugabe made these remarks today when he addressed a Zanu PF Central Committee meeting in the city, which focused on the current civil unrest in the country and economic problems facing Zimbabwe.
Mr. Mugabe said he was democratically elected by the people in 2013 and therefore opposition parties and civil society organizations, whose members are staging protests, should wait for the next elections in 2018.
His remarks came at a time when members of Tajamuka-Sesijikile Campaign staged a peaceful demonstration in Harare, which was crushed by the police.
