On Wednesday, 1 August 2018, Zimbabwean protestors took to the streets of Harare. The country’s controversial elections – the first since the ousting of dictator Robert Mugabe – had indicated that the ruling party, ZANU-PF, would retain power. Pro-opposition members of the public took to Harare’s streets in protest. The Zimbabwean military reacted with lethal force, deploying armoured cars and troops to the streets. ADR’s Thomas Holder was on the ground in Harare.
