Zimbabweans Now Tired Of Demonstrations, Prefer Dialogue Instead - Report
Zimbabweans are now tired of demonstrations as they believe them to be a dead end and will not achieve anything positive.
This comes as the main opposition party, the MDC has vowed to roll out demonstrations across the country to force the government to deal with the many challenges facing ordinary citizens.
A survey carried out by New Zimbabwe in Harare revealed that ordinary people do not want demonstrations. A citizen identified as Tendai Makechemu said:
These demonstrations will not solve anything. What is only required is for the interested parties to engage in a dialogue. By doing so, I am sure they will come up with a solution which will pave a way forward.
Look at our neighbouring countries. I wonder what these countries are doing which our country is failing to do. These are the reasons why most of our citizens are migrating to these countries.

Another citizen, Nelson Mushonga, said dialogue is the way to go, and that protests will only result in loss of people’s lives. He said:
Demonstrations are not the solution to the current situation in the country. If the political leaders were willing to resolve economic problems, they will surely resolve the issues. Protests will only result in loss of lives and price hikes which does not change anything.
The economy can only be resolved by demand and supply. As regards money, people are demanding the adoption of the US Dollar. If this country is selling minerals like gold in US$, the question is why is it that the government is failing to pay salaries in that currency?
They could even give at least US$10 for each and every transaction made by individuals at the banks. This will reduce money changers in the streets because the foreign currency will be circulating.
