WASHINGTON DC —
Occupy Africa Unity Square protest leader, Itai Dzamara’s whereabouts remain unknown despite mounting pressure for his release.
Police say they are investigating the alleged kidnapping of Dzamara, who was on Monday forced into an Isuzu truck by unidentified assailants.
Lawmakers traded barbs in parliament on Wednesday as Movement for Democratic Change lawmakers demanded answers on Dzamara’s whereabouts from their Zanu PF colleagues.
Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is also the justice minister and leader of the house, responded to the MDC-T saying he was equally concerned by Dzamara’s alleged forced disappearance.
There were unconfirmed reports that Dzamara was being held at Harare Central Police Station but lawyer Charles Charamba told VOA Studio 7’s Blessing Zulu that their client is not at the said police station.
