Police have, for the second time, asked Doctor Patson Dzamara, brother of abducted political activist Itai Dzamara, to report at a local police station following the release of a photograph by the Dzamara family claiming that the masked person in captivity in the picture with hands tied to the back is Itai Dzamara.

“The police asked me to present the image I presented at the press conference. They asked me to present it to them, and so I was supposed to go there today but because of other commitments I could not,” Dr. Dzamara said.

The family claims that Itai Dzamara was allegedly abducted by the Zimbabwe National Army’s intelligence unit, an allegation which it has dismissed as baseless.

Dr. Dzamara Wednesday met with a team of detectives of the Law and Order section led by Assistant Commissioner Crispen Makedenge and two operatives of the Central Intelligence Organization, who indicated that they wanted to inquire about the authenticity of the information that he has concerning the abduction of his brother.

He said he will visit the police Friday in the company of his lawyers.
