Zimbabweans in Low-key Uhuru Protest Using "The Flag"
Zimbabweans took to social media in a low-key Uhuru protest as the nation celebrates 43 years of independence.
While most the diaspora huns used “The Flag, the Face” to celebrate Zimbabwe's 43 years of independence, social media users in the country took it as an opportunity to protest.
In some of the posts, users showed that there was little to celebrate.

Other users felt there was need to show the achievements rather than the face.

The gold smuggling scandal Gold Mafia that was exposed by Al Jazeera’s Investigative unit was not forgotten as users posted that the real beneficiaries were the gold smugglers.
