10 South Africa Celebrities’ comments towards the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter

It has been a difficult last couple of years for all the people of Zimbabwe where the country has been facing financial crisis for over a decade. Recently a movement has been trending with the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter which started after a prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono and Jacob Ngarivhumewho exposed corruption got arrested without bail, but the government alleges he was inciting violence. Furthermore, Zimbabwean government has imposed curfew to tackle COVID-19 and also tightened other measures but this is believed by the opposition party to be linked to anti-government protests planned for next week.

South African celebrities have taken on to tweeter and other platforms in support of the #ZimbabweanLivesMatter some of them include:

Julius Malema

We call for the removal of the Zimbabwean Embassy in SA until they restore the human rights in that country. Failure to do so, we will prevent any official from the Zimbabwean government from participating in any gathering in SA until they respect ordinary Zimbabweans.

We will do what we can as public figures & friends who can speak freely in our country for those who are scared to do so in their own, with good reason.Zimbabwe’s people have been feeling the pain of sanctions for 20 years. Sanctions are part of the problem.

What’s happening in Zimbabwe rite now is horrifying . People’s human rights are being violated. They are getting beaten , arrested and killed for speaking out against the government. We as Africans need to stand together against injustice
