Fadzayi Mahere is a prominent Zimbabwean lawyer and politician. Fadzayi grew up in Mount Pleasant, Harare and attended Arundel School. After a career in legal advocacy, she emerged around April 2016 as a politician in the mass movement of activists rising against the government.

In June 2016, Advocate Mahere participated in the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe public inquisition on the printing and introduction of additional bond notes in 2016[4]. At the event, Mahere highlighted that the bond notes were unconstitutional, according to Chapter 17 of the Constitution, on public finance.

Also in 2016, as part of the activist movement #thisflagmovement, she began motivating and mobilising people, using mainly social media channels such as Facebook Live and Twitter to rise against the government. In 2017 she announced her bid to represent Mt Pleasant in the 2018 elections as an independent candidate. She was arrested in 2017 after organising a soccer tournament in her constituency and was charged under the Public Order and Security Act (POSA).
