South Africans have begun a hunger strike in protest against the political, economic and social crisis that has crippled neighbouring Zimbabwe and in solidarity with its citizens. The fast is centred on Central Methodist Mission in central Johannesburg, which has long been a home to Zimbabweans seeking refuge from the situation at home. However people in other parts of the country are also expected to take part, including former Cape Town Anglican archbishop and Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu.

The hunger strike has been organised by a new initiative, Save Zimbabwe Now, which aims to mobilise public awareness of the crisis in southern Africa
