Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Political Uncertainty in Zimbabwe

As a result of the ongoing political uncertainty through the night, the Ambassador has instructed all employees to remain home tomorrow.

U.S. government personnel have been instructed to shelter in their residences tonight and work remotely from home on November 15. The embassy will be minimally staffed and closed to the public.

U.S. citizens in Zimbabwe are encouraged to shelter in place until further notice.   Please monitor news and embassy notifications.

In case of an emergency involving U.S. citizens, U.S. citizens should call Consul Amy Diaz at +263 772 102 179.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  Avoid areas where demonstrations are taking place and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
