The United States Embassy in Harare has condemned the acts of violence that broke out in Harare this afternoon.

The Embassy Spokesperson, Dave McGuire told the ZBC News that they are concerned by events unfolding in Harare. 

“We urge leaders of all parties to call for calm from members of their respective parties.  We further urge the Defense Forces of Zimbabwe to use restraint in dispersing protestors,” he said.

McGuire added that Zimbabwe has a historic opportunity to move the country towards a brighter future for all its citizens, of which violence cannot be a part of that process.
