Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Tuesday that misconduct by security forces reacting to protests over fuel price hikes would be investigated, but he added the increases were the right thing to do.
"Violence or misconduct by our security forces is unacceptable and a betrayal of the new Zimbabwe," Mnangagwa wrote on Twitter, in his first public comments since returning home from a trip to Russia and other former Soviet countries.
"Misconduct will be investigated. If required, heads will roll," Mnangagwa said, calling for a "national dialogue" over the protests.
