Several people converged at Africa Unity Square today to press the government to find abducted political activist Itai Dzamara of Occupy Africa Unity Square who disappeared 17 months ago. Patson Dzamara, the brother of Itai, Jestina Mukoko of the Zimbabwe Peace Project, who was once abducted by state security agents, and several other activists said they would stage such protests until the former journalist-cum protest leader is found.
Lawyers representing 10 women who are jointly facing a charge of public nuisance after they staged a protest at the venue of an international cricket match over the weekend in Bulawayo today applied for refusal of further remand at the magistrates’ court, arguing that the women have no case to answer.
