Dejected Dzamara Family to Meet Mnangagwa Over Missing Activist

Convernors of the Itai Dzamara prayer meetings together with his family are planning to meet with Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa sometime this week over the government’s lack of support in the search for the missing political activist.

Bishop Ancelimo Magaya, who leads the Itai Dzamara Trust and the Zimbabwe Devine Destiny, says they resolved in a meeting Monday in Harare to send a delegation, which includes a member of the Dzamara family to meet with the vice president.

This comes at a time when the nation marks exactly 11 months after the activist was abducted by unknown assailants in Harare’s Glen-View suburb.

He says they try to secure an appointment with Mr. Mnangagwa Tuesday and as soon as that is done they will update the public.

“We have penned a document to take to the vice president and we have identified the members of the delegation that will go and see him,” Bishop Magaya says.

The Itai Dzamara Trust is Tuesday holding a lunch-hour prayer meeting at Africa Unity Square, the place where Dzamara’s Occupy Africa Unity Square group launched a campaign for President Robert Mugabe to step down claiming that he has failed to properly run Zimbabwe.

Bishop Magaya says they feel the police are not following or respecting a High Court order, which compelled them to update the nation on their progress in looking for the missing activist after every two weeks.
