This message is to inform U.S. citizens that violent confrontations have occurred between transport workers and Zimbabwe Republic Police along the Mutare highway in the Eastern suburbs of Harare. We have had reports that traffic into and out of Harare is blocked. We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens avoid this area if possible.
The Embassy anticipates that tensions will remain high throughout the city and U.S. citizens should monitor local media for updates.
