Civic society leaders arrested under POSA
MISA-Zimbabwe
October 26, 2009

Dadirai Chikwengo chairperson of the National Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (NANGO), national director Cephas Zinhumwe and secretary Godfrey Phiri, were arrested on 24 October 2009 in the resort town of Victoria Falls under the draconian Public Order and Security Act (POSA).

The three who are in custody in Victoria Falls were arrested for allegedly failing to notify the police of a strategic retreat meeting convened by NANGO for national directors of civic society organisations in terms of POSA. Section 24 of POSA stipulates that an organiser shall notify the regulatory authority of intention of holding a public gathering. They are expected to appear in court at 2pm on 26 October 2009.
