A full transcript of the Message doing rounds on the various social platforms is copied below. What waits to be seen is if the said protest will be done according to the supreme law following agreed protest steps and manners. This is so as to protect citizens and properties as enshrined in the Law.
TOTAL & FINAL SHUTDOWN!!!
Today we officially declared the national shutdown against government’s bad policies that have led to the untold suffering of the citizens.
This declaration means that nobody should come to work from Monday the 27th of May 2019 to Friday the 31st of May 2019.
We have announced this shutdown on a Thursday to give you time to buy all the basic necessities you will need during the national shutdown.
If you decide to come to work during the stay away or to open your shop, do not cry fowl when rowdy elements, taking advantage of the citizens stay away destroy damage or loot your shop.
We are shutting down to protest
High and unjustified taxes
Planned and unlawful retrenchment of civil servants
Killing and eviction of vendors without offering them any alternative livelihood
Deteriorating living standards, shortage of basic commodities and hiking prices
Use of live ammunition by state enforcement agents against unarmed and peace loving citizens.
In conclusion, non but ourselves can stop us. Let us show these thieves that enough is enough.
Economic freedom in our lifetime!
People’s Revolutionary Council
What awaits the nation is whether the said protests would not degenerate into a state of violence that saw most people either killed, injured or properties looted, burnt or destroyed.
