Zim Latest  News  has been receiving many calls from concerned citizens who fear that This Flag and Tajamuka leaders have forgotten their soldier in arms, Linda.

Described by Zimbabwe police chief, Charity Charamba as a hooligan, Masarira is one of the fearless and silent drivers of recent protests.

Unfortunately she is not been helped from behind prison walls.

Masarira who is known for her peaceful protests is facing charges of ‘engaging in violent protests’ organized by Pastor Evan Mawarire of #thisflag and Tajamuka-Sesijikile Campaign. Her children are now living from hand to mouth.

Masarira’s friends in civic society have described her as a fearless warrior fighting for democracy in Zimbabwe. But the state sees her as an enemy as she is currently languishing at Chikurubi Remand Prison following what police said were illegal protests that hit the country early this month. She allegedly violated some sections of the dreaded Criminal Law (Codification and Reform Act).

Masarira, a widow and former employee of the National Railways of Zimbabwe, had no steady income when she was netted by the police for allegedly taking part in the national protests.

Her friend, Mandowa Manezhu, admits that very little resources have been coming to help Masarira’s children in Mutare, Manicaland province.

Life appears to be tough inside and outside remand prison as her family is now struggling to make ends meet.

Masarire has five children with four of them going to school and the last born being only two years.
