Harare ‑ Four people were feared dead on Monday while more than 20 people were treated for gunshot wounds as violent protests swept through Zimbabwe after government increased the price of fuel.
On Saturday night, President Emmerson Mnangagwa hiked the fuel with over 100 percent, triggering protests.
Two people were reportedly shot in the populous high-density suburb of Harare, with another one in the dormitory town of Chitungwiza, about 30km south of the capital.
The fourth person was reportedly shot in Epworth.
The protestors barricaded several roads in both Harare and Bulawayo using boulders, burning tyres and logs. Businesses that opened for the day were shut down at around 11 am.
