A lawyer representing abducted political activist, Itai Dzamara of Occupy Africa Unity Square, says they have approached the courts to seek an order to compel the police and other security agents to find him.

Dzamara dissappeared 83 days ago and the government has professed ignorance over his whereabouts amid allegations that he was allegedly abducted by Central Intelligence Organization (CIO) agents.

Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa once told parliament that the state has no clue on what happened to the activist, who was calling on President Robert Mugabe to step down for allegedly failing to properly run the country.

Charles Kwaramba, a member of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights, says police and CIO agents are not doing enough to find Dzamara.

The High Court ruled that these government arms should look for Dzamara and publicize their findings.
