Zimbabwean demonstrators lay down in the road outside the conference in London addressed by Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa preventing him from leaving for more than an hour.

The minister had hoped to escape in an ordinary taxi after his arrival in the ambassador’s car ZIM 1 was ambushed by Zimbabwean exiles picketing Zanu PF’s fundraising conference in the heart of London’s financial district.

The minister’s taxi was backed up by other cars so was unable to escape the one way road and he had to wait until the demonstrators were lifted bodily by the police to clear the way.

The demonstration at the conference began before 8 am and ended at about 7 pm. Chinamasa was expected back for the last session but did not reappear, having failed by diplomatic car and taxi and declining a bicycle on grounds of corpulence,

Sources at the conference told the Zimbabwe Vigil that Chinamasa had been challenged by Professor Stephen Chan of the School of Oriental and African Studies: ‘Why are you begging money from the British government’.

Tendai Biti, the coalition’s finance minister who expressed support for our demonstration when he arrived, is said to have told Chinamasa bluntly that he was lying.

Zimbabwe Vigil supporters and others from ZAPU and MDC agreed to hold another demonstration outside the Zimbabwe Embassy from 10.30 – 12 noon on Wednesday 6th July in response to the myflag call for ‘Shut Down Zimbabwe. They are calling for everyone to stay at home but in our case we won’t stay at home but will be outside the Zimbabwe Embassy in solidarity with our families at home.

    One thing that annoys me is that anyone who disagrees with ZANU and Mugabe is labelled sponsored by the west. It is hight of idiotic mentality in other words they will be implying to say we Zimbos are stupid we can not see what’s bad unless told by Britain or American that the regime full of thieves and murderers. Idiots.
