Zimbabwean opposition parties have reportedly said that they have lined up a series of fresh demonstrations to force President Robert Mugabe and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) to implement electoral reforms.

According to News Day, the opposition parties under the banner of the National Electoral Reforms Agenda (Nera) said they were ready for fresh protests.

"Nera national transitional working group (NTWG) has agreed to start a second wave of electoral reforms agenda push to make sure that reforms are not overtaken by events," Nera NTWG chairperson, Joelson Mugari was quoted as saying.

The demonstrations were set to take place on November 9, 16, and 23, the report said.

Nera held nationwide protests in July and August, which allegedly ended in violence, mostly in Harare and Bulawayo, when police tried to block them.

The opposition parties demanded reform ahead of the 2018 election.

Zimbabwean police in September denied using bullets to disperse protesters in Harare.
