Security Alert – Widespread Disruption, Street Blockades, and Violent Protests in Response to Fuel Shortages and a Fuel Price Hike


Notice: Undefined variable: fm_appid in /var/www/wp-content/plugins/facebook-members/facebook-members.php on line 71

There have been widespread tensions, sometimes including violent protests, countrywide — including in Harare’s Central Business District, Epworth, Chitungwiza, and downtown Bulawayo. The Embassy recommends that you exercise caution in these areas and monitor local media for updates. Additionally, there are reports of fights breaking out in fuel queues and as a result the Embassy advised official Americans to not use fuel stations until the situation has calmed.

Actions to Take:

Stay away from the Harare Commercial Business District, Epworth, Chitungwiza, and downtown Bulawayo;

Avoid demonstrations and all public gatherings;

Exercise increased caution;

Monitor local news stations for updates;

Be vigilant and take steps to enhance your personal security; and

Remain alert for potentially dangerous situations.
