  • Three more arrested at Copac meetings
    Movement for Democratic Change
    October 31, 2010

    Three students 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 being held.

    Reports are 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.

    Meanwhile, three 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.
