Speaking to journalists at a press conference last week, Tendai Biti who was representing the Alliance spokesperson, Welshman Ncube revealed the route to be taken by protesters indicating that the demonstrators would assemble at Africa Unitg Square and march to ZEC where theu would hand in their petition and proceed to Mnangagwa’s offices to deliver another petition.
