HARARE - Tents are going up in central Harare ahead of a Million Man march in support for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.

ZANU-PF youths have been fundraising ahead of tomorrow's march which is expected to see huge amounts of traffic in the capital.

Marchers will converge on Robert Mugabe Square near the ZANU-PF headquarters on Rotten Row.

The last Million Man march organised by the ruling party was in 2007.

Like this march, it had the support of many veterans of the war for independence.

Buses and a train have been organised to ferry marchers from Zimbabwe's main towns.

The UK government has warned its citizens in Zimbabwe of significant traffic disruptions and said they should stay away from political activity.

There's still no news on whether Mugabe himself is back from Singapore, where he's been visiting his new grandson.
