Bulawayo police on 2 March 2013 summoned Radio Dialogue employee Zenzele Ndebele to appear in court on 4 March 2013 in connection with the radio sets that were raided and confiscated by police from his workplace.

Ndebele was summoned to the police station for questioning on 2 March 2013 for the second time.

MISA Zimbabwe spoke to prominent human rights lawyer, Kucaca Phulu who is handling the matter. Puhlu said Ndebele had initially been charged with possession of smuggled goods in contravention of s.182 of the Customs & Excise Act is but a further charge of possession of a radio receiver without a valid ZBC licence in contravention of s.38 of the Broadcasting Services Act, had been added.
