🔴 PLEASE HELP!!!! 😕

There have been protests in Zimbabwe over the 100% increase in fuel prices. Stay aways were organised from Monday to Wednesday to support the stance of the Zimbabweans on this absurd hike overnight. However, the military has gotten involved and is once again abusing its power. Live ammunition was fired into crowds on Monday.

Yesterday morning the government shut down all social media. I used Messenger to contact my mom (she lives in Harare) at 6.30am UK time as WhatsApp had already been blocked. She and my aunt were staying off work and were in their flat in one of the suburbs. A bit later on, the entire contact grid went down. Nothing going in or out of Zimbabwe at all. No Internet connection and all landlines have been disabled. I tried calling mom's landline several times last night and the connection was dead.

This is extremely worrying as the military (early Tuesday reports) had begun entering homes in the townships to physically remove people's cell phones and then beat up innocent people who were staying away from the troubles on the streets.

Several people (can't verify numbers) have been shot and killed by the military as live ammunition is used to fire into crowds to disperse them.

I have not heard from my mom now for 24 hours 😥😔

Zimbabwe has been completely isolated from the rest of the world as well as each other.

PLEASE can this message reach as many people around the world as possible so that hopefully a journalist can see it.

Innocent civilians are being murdered and the world doesn't know ☠️☠️☠️

Thanks Panni ❤️ I received a text message from mom about 15 minutes ago. She just said they're OK. Not sure how the text got through but I'm relieved to have some contact. Internet still blocked though so real-time news is impossible.

Some good news. I managed to get hold of mom on her landline. She hasn't been into work since Monday as everyone has been advised to steer clear of the troubles. It's a dire situation but thank goodness she is safe.

We already covered the news. I hope your mom will be save and the people don't have to suffer more than they already do.
