In July this year, women in Bulawayo marched through town beating their cooking utensils against their pots as a form of protest against President Robert Mugabe’s government.

This act is symbolic of the starvation being experienced within many households and as Thokozane Khupe put it “these pots that we are beating are no longer cooking anything at home, this is why we brought them to say we no longer have anything to cook. We are starving.”
