Student leader abducted in Bulawayo
Students Solidarity Trust
April 26, 2007

Barely a week after two student leaders were abducted by the ruthless state security agencies in Bulawayo, another student leader, Tafadzwa Chengewa, has been abducted. His whereabouts is not known!

He was abducted last night in a city flat in Bulawayo's CBD. He is the President of United College of Education (UCE). Chengewa was forcibly taken from a flat in Bulawayo by unidentified henchmen and other student leaders in Bulawayo now fear for their lives.

This latest of wave of abductions, which come on the heels of sweeping countrywide abductions by a feared vigilante group of security agencies has sent the whole student leadership in Bulawayo scurrying for safety - on the run, in fear of their lives.

Trust Nhubu and Valencia Jachi were last week abducted by state security agencies after being accused of passing critical comments in a public meeting. They were severely tortured and both were dumped 200km outside Bulawayo.
