The latest deployment is in the central city of Gweru, where police are patrolling in trucks and have cordoned off a university.

The opposition MDC, which called the rallies, described the move as a determined effort by the authorities to ensure there was no more democratic space in Zimbabwe.

The MDC failed to overturn earlier bans on protests in the city of Bulawayo and the capital, Harare.
