Zvaringeni Samuel Chasi, head of the opposition People’s Patriotic Party (PPP), informed NewZimbabwe.com that Mnangagwa had a human shield of an estimated 225 aides to keep the demonstrators at bay.

According to Chasi, some 34 Zimbabweans planned to humiliate the ZANU PF leader upon his arrival, but he took a different exit than the one where the demonstrators were waiting for him. Chasi stated:

We were about 34 people, local Zimbabweans and around 80 who joined online in solidarity. We are going to UNGA and his residency.

The citizens have vowed they are going to do a citizen arrest on him. Everyone is going to be down on the ground here today and tomorrow. We are not going to stop. He might not go back to Zimbabwe. He is in trouble.

The picketing was successfully done although he used a different exit from the one he was supposed to use.

The protests are not yet over. Everyone is on him. He is on the run.

The protestors want to put pressure on the international community to intervene and arrest Mnangagwa for alleged gross human rights violations, including rape, mass genocides, torture and abductions.

Mnangagwa is currently in New York for the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting where he is expected to address other Heads of State.
