Zimbabwe's Opposition Party is Pleading With South Africa to Intervene in The Country's Crisis

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has made a plea for South Africa to intervene in the country's escalating crisis.

The MDC has made a plea to South Africa to intervene in the current nationwide shutdown that has led to the death of five Zimbabweans and the injury of 25 others. Yesterday, the government disabled the country's Internet and access to social media through directives given to major network providers Econet and TelOne. Most recently, activist Evan Mawarire was arrested by police for his involvement in the anti-government protests.


The MDC has been blamed by Zanu-PF for wanting to overthrow a democratically elected Emmerson Mnangagwa and replace him with Nelson Chamisa, a plot they feel is fueling the current violence in the country.

The South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, has not made official comments on the current happenings in Zimbabwe yet. However, Mmusi Maimane, leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA), the country's official opposition party, has said that South Africa can no longer remain silent while the volatile situation in Zimbabwe continues to worsen.

According to EWN, Maimane said:

"We can't approach silent diplomacy. We have to go in there and intervene, and ultimately hold the Zimbabwean government to account. It's a plight in the brotherhood that the African Union has become, where they refuse to stand up to each other and say what's happening in Zimbabwe is wrong."
