HARARE - Thousands of ruling party supporters have marched through the streets of the Zimbabwean capital Harare in a show of support for President Robert Mugabe.



The chilling threat was made as thousands of young people gathered at the ruling party headquarters today.

The building is just a few hundred metres away from the court where pastor Mawarire was last week cleared of trying to overthrow the government.

He has led a mostly online campaign calling for government accountability through peaceful stayaways.

State media is quoting Zanu-PF youth Commissar Innocent Hamandishe saying that youths voted Mugabe into power.



In what looked very much like a direct threat, he said police should stand aside so that the youths can deal with pastors and what he called their funny acts.
