Zimbabwean citizens are protesting to show their dissatisfaction with the continued economic hardships and alleged mismanagement by government.
Warehouses at the Beit Bridge border were set alight last week by protesters angry about a new ban on imports.
News Editor at the Zimbabwe Independent, Owen Gagare, says citizens have lost their patience for the deteriorating economy.
He says that public servants - including teachers, doctors and nurses - are striking against the high levels of corruption within senior offices.
According to Gagare, the import ban has negatively affected many citizens who depend on cross-border trade to make ends meet.
He says that this could be the start of a tipping point in Zimbabwe, where people are mobilizing themselves.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwean laywer David Coltart says that civic organisations are taking a stand through non-violent protest.
We need this ground swell movement to rise up, peacefully. And bring this long struggle to an end.— David Coltart, founder of the Movement for Democratic Change
However, Coltart says he is concerned that the military junta could clamp down viciously on civic action.
