Relatives of abducted Occupy Africa Unity Square leader Itai Dzamara engage state security agents in their search for the political activist, who has been missing for almost seven months.

His brother, Partson, says they are worried about Itai’s disappearance despite high level discussions they have been holding with the police and state spy network, the Central Intelligence Organization (CIO).

This development is in line with a court order for state security agents to look for Itai and make the necessary reports to relevant authorities.

Dzamara’s organization has been calling for President Robert Mugabe to step down for allegedly failing to property run Zimbabwe.

Life has been hard for Itai’s wife, Sheffra, who has been receiving counselling from a local organization.
