The Pretoria event, organised by the Zimbabwe Diaspora Vote Coalition, praised the Zimbabwe Defence Force for their intervention this week, which saw the country’s military moving into strategic places across the city, particularly in the capital Harare.

Most of the placards in Pretoria bore the legend: “Mugabe must go”.

It was unclear if the presidency in South Africa would be receiving a memorandum from the protesters. South African President Jacob Zuma has sent a delegation to Harare as the impasse continues to rock the Zimbabwean capital.
