An uneasy calm returned to Zimbabwe’s main cities.
Businesses and schools remained closed and mobile networks enforced a government internet shutdown on the final day of a national strike triggered by a steep rise in fuel prices.
Workers’ trade unions called for a three-day nationwide shutdown to protest the government’s decision to more than double the price of fuel.
The action comes shortly after junior doctors ended a 40-day strike demanding that their salaries be paid in US dollars and better working conditions.
