WOZA members, eight women, three men and two babies, were arrested
in Nketa, Bulawayo today. They were about to attend a meeting, which
was disrupted by riot police before it could commence. The 11 members
were sitting outside a church when riot police arrived there after
failing to find anyone at the appointed meeting place.
Police allowed the mothers and babies to be released into the custody
of their lawyer for the night but nine remain in custody tonight.
Two university students arrested close by were also arrested with
the WOZA members but have been released into their lawyer's custody.
On Monday WOZA
meeting venues were also surrounded by police but no members were
arrested and the meetings took place as planned.
