It wont help. Zimbabweans have had enough of this pain. They are peace loving and hard working people who have been pushed too much into the corner. Hear their cry plizzz.

We won't be cowed or deterred, we want the vampires out both lycans and vulcans.

Truth- Mawarire did not incite people to destroy property- his video messages are very clear and this is just intimidation and a waste of time. When people start saying enough is enough and they are prepared to die for the cause then you know RGM has got months if not weeks to pack and go to Singapore.

CHAMUPUPURI - 12 July 2016

Evan never incited violence if read his messages. this is just a regime which is heartless and finds joy in people's suffering. People have had enough of you. you can arrest him but you can never arrest the idea. more protests are coming #this flag

mallorytk - 12 July 2016

You arrest him for "violence" yet there's many videos of you animals in uniform beating people senselessly, who's really violent?

Anthony Galtieri - 12 July 2016

we are tired of this gvt. please Mugabe go!

taneta - 12 July 2016

ZANU PF DESPERATION HAS REACHED A POINT OF NO RETURN AND IT APPEARS THEY ARE GETTING CLUELESS BY THE DAY. WHY ARREST A PASTOR FOR TELLING THE TRUTH? THESE DEMONSTATIONS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH INCITING VIOLENCE BUT WE, THE PPL OF ZIMBABWE ARE NATURALLY FED UP WITH MUGABE AND HIS FAMILY AND PARTY, HE MUST JUST LEAVE ZIMBABWEANS ALONE. MUGABE, BE INFORMED, WE ZIMBABWEANS OWE YOU NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY

IsheZimuto - 12 July 2016

Meanwhile, Supa Mandiwanzira is roaming the streets free after looting state coffers and threatening Evan Mawarire with death. Mugabe justice. The stay away is definitely on tomorrow.

Ndafunga Rhodesia, corruption, opression, intimidation, impunity, segregation,no feedom, kutoti muRhodesia taiguta hedu. Under mugabe zimbabwe inzara mazuva ese. Ngatibatanei, zvinoita.

john maogobo - 12 July 2016

Pray, yes we wont stop but action is also needed. Joshua prayed but he also had to march around Jericho...pamberi mberi with shut down.... Tajamuka...taramba! Say no to police brutality....

Dakarai - 12 July 2016

zanuff, mugabe and your cabal leave Pastor Mawarire alone. Consider the violence you have done to innocent people by unleashing your dogs of war on hungry citizens. He has done no violence. Manje mave kutotitsamwisa manje. You are try to provoke violence by arresting him. You will be responsible for whatever violence happens tomorrow. zanupf and yor rouge rabbed police killed a child in Bulawayo with you tear gas. Who is violent? The problem is that you take all Zimbos for fools. Who are fools then? We have been intimidated for too long. We know you are trigger happy and ready to kill us. Saka kusiri kufa ndekupi. Nzara nenhamo zvatikanga tatvsukira imi mune mazitumbu semombe iri pamarket. We are simply asking for what is ours by right. Some of nus kana kuhondo kwacho takanga tiri tose but we have been side lined. You now eat with those of thicker blood and those who lick youe behinds. Be not mistaken, Zimbos are very very angry. Nothing can stop them now. This is for us a protracted uprising to free ourselves from your oppression which you very well know you are doing. Do not accuse anyone outside Zimbabwe for what we are doing. It is an insult to Zimbabweans to think that they are unaware of their cuurent problems in their nation.according you you Mugabe, you think that someone has to come and see what you are doing to us and then incite us. You think we do not have the capacity to reason and to feel. You rose against injustice in the 60s and we joined in the 70s. That tells you about our capacity to read situations and judge them correctly and react accordingly. HANDEI TIONE. Muchatotipedza tose mugosara moga nana gire nevana venyu. If you were wiser you would release all those people you are arresting and start to behave like the democrats that you say you are.

che - 12 July 2016

This is a desperate move by a despotic and illegal regime which will stoke people's anger .Tomorrow instead of staying away let us besiege the courts demanding for the release of the pastor.As for the G40 sympathiser Truth my advice take a leaf from Viola NGWENA DO NOT POST COMMENTS ON VERY SENSITIVE ISSUES YOU WILL NOT BE DOING ANY GOOD TO YOUR USELESS FACTION.

@Truth ndakushaira mupanda asi chokwadi uri MBOKO

neni ndajamuka - 12 July 2016

These are the last kicks of a dying zanu pf rogue regime. The inevitable have arrived. The country's people have been, brutally oppressed, starved, and life have become meaningless. People's patience have run out and the anger vault have been compressed over 36yrs and its full. People can't wait any longer. Any action against this regime is justified even god will understand.

BELLARMINE CHATUNGA - 13 July 2016

Warning to all those ZRP Police officers brutally beating protesters: From video footage, witnesses and other material at our disposal, we have identified each and every one of you and the day is fast approaching where each and every one of you will be held accountable and punished for your crimes against humanity. We know who you are - justice will prevail. Excuses such as: We were just obeying orders, will not serve as mitigating circumstances, be warned and take this notice seriously.

Mbewa - 13 July 2016

Inciting violence is a crime in any country in the world. It is expected that people remain civilized as mainly the innocent suffer as a result of the violence. It is sad that we have a few uneducated who don't understand that peace is the way forward.
