The meeting kicked off at 14:30 hours with the Organising Secretary Ndumiso Ncube asking fundraiser Josephene Khomeh to give an opening prayer and thereafter making brief welcoming and introductory remarks. He then asked ROHR North East Co-ordinator Tapiwa Semwayo to chair the meeting. Issues on the agenda included: homelessness, unemployment, higher education tuition, mixing of different cultures or religions in one house, drug and alcohol abuse. The Organising Secretary had done his job very well to ensure the success of the meeting. To add quality and purpose to our meeting we had the honour to have the Founder/ President of ROHR Mr Ephraim Tapa attending the meeting.

On 26th February 2016 scores of protesters from all over England braved the chilly British weather for a protest organized by the two biggest Zimbabwe activist organisations in the UK: Restoration of Human Rights in Zimbabwe (ROHR) and the Zimbabwe Vigil. Placard waving protesters marched outside Dr Sylvester Nyatsuro’s Willows Medical Centre in Nottingham drumming and singing and distributing flyers to Nyatsuro’s patients and neighbours informing them of the hypocrisy of the Nyatsuros.

On Saturday 13th February 2016 ROHR Leicester branch held a fundraising event at the Salvation Army Church Hall to raise money to help our branch and its members and to fund our future fundraising events.

Leicester members met at 9 am at the venue to start cooking and decorating the place. Unity, hard work and determination made the preparations for the event a success.

As the event was on the day before Valentine’s Day, and in appreciation of delicious Zimbabwean food, our theme was, ‘Zimbabwean food with love’. The dress code was African wear or valentine colours which many people stuch to impressively. The hall was decorated in red and white and it looked good. The event kicked off at 3pm with people socialising and connecting with those from different branches and organisations.  It was really good networking.
