Three more arrested at Copac meetings
for Democratic Change
James Katso (21), Peter Garanewako (24) and another whose identity
we are yet to establish were arrested today at Hatcliff shops in
Harare North constituency where the Copac consultation meeting was
that the three were the most vocal who spoke their minds which,
apparently, were at variance with the Zanu PF position so much that
the Zanu PF youth felt intimidated and decided to punish them after
the Copac team left.
The two are
said to have been tracked by about twenty youth who assaulted Garanewako
before handing them over to the police.
We are yet to
establish which police station they were taken to but they were
ferried in a ZRP Nissan single cab registration no. ZRP 3195 M.
MDC officials, Eric Murai, the provincial youth Assembly vice Secretary,
Diana Nyikadzino, the MDC Harare provincial Administrator, the Harare
provincial Driver, Phineas Nhatarikwa and two journalists, Andrisen
Manyere and Nkosana Dhlamini, who were yesterday arrested at a consultative
meeting in Harare South constituency at St John's retreat
have been released after being forced to pay US$20 fine.
