JOHANNEBURG - Zimbabwean activist Pastor Evan Mawarire says he hasn&39;t committed any crimes.

The leader of the ThisFlag movement has been ordered to report to police on Tuesday

This as authorities crackdown on activists protesting against President Robert Mugabe’s economic policies.

Mawarire says all his movement wants is an end to corruption and police brutality. 

"We are asking them first and foremost to deal with corruption which has become a runaway cancer within government particularly with government ministers,” he said.

“Secondly we are asking that the police stop their abuse of the citizens on their road. It seems they&39;re raiding money from us in terms of the number of raid blocks that there are,” said Mawarire.

The Pastor says the government needs to put an end to police brutality and to lift the ban on imports of basic commodities.

“They say they&39;re protecting the local industry but there is no such industry it has collapsed under their failed policies,” said Mawarire.
