There is a total internet shutdown in Zimbabwe. VPNs are not working. All websites are down. The techie gurus got me back on for few minutes to get this message out: Zimbabweans in the diaspora and our friends throughout the world, please keep up the campaign to #SwitchBackOnZw!
Under the cover of the internet blackout, the military have unleashed a campaign of terror. Soldiers are shooting people. bashing down doors, dragging people out of homes & beating them up, making ppl roll in the mud. No one is covering what’s happening. #shutdownZimbabwe
📷 A brave soul managed to capture this photograph of the military operation currently underway in Harare’s high-density townships. Soliders are going door-to-door beating people. They’re taking people’s phones from them and detroying them. #Zimbabwe #ShutdownZimbabwe
