Thousands Will Take To The Streets In First Ever State Sanctioned ... Anti-Mugabe Rally Tomorrow

Thousands are expected to take to the streets of Zimbabwe tomorrow in what is thought to be the first ever state-sanctioned protest against Robert Mugabe.


Zimbabwe's influential National Liberation War Veterans Association called for an anti-Mugabe rally on Saturday and said the 'game was up' for the veteran leader and his wife.

The demonstration has since been given the green light by police - another example of the growing freedoms Zimbabweans have been enjoying since Mugabe's house arrest began.

It comes amid reports the 93-year-old is refusing to resign and has issued a series of demands to ensure a dignified end to his brutal 37-year grip on the country - with conditions including immunity from prosecution and safe passage for his family.

Today, footage showed the dictator appearing to fall asleep as he attended a university graduation ceremony on the outskirts of the capital Harare today.

With his presidential security team present, the 93-year-old had earlier walked slowly in a procession on a red carpet to a podium as a marching band played in front of thousands of graduates of the Zimbabwe Open University.

There was still no sign, however, of Mugabe's wife, Grace, 52, who is said to have been with the tyrant when the pair were placed under house arrest at their £7.5million Blue Roof mansion in Harare earlier this week.
