“I know I can be killed through torture or even poisoning while in police cells”: Mutodi says he has alerted US and UN that he is in danger


Zanu-PF activist and avowed supporter of Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Energy Mutodi who was arrested yesterday for suggesting that Defence Minister Sydney Sekeramayi and Health Minister David ParireMnangagwawere behind the alleged poisoning of Mnangagwa, claims to have told the United States Embassy and the United Nations that his life is in danger because he expressed his freedom of speech. He says he is aware that he may be killed but insists that he is not going to run away.

In a Facebook post written before he turned himself over to the police, Mutodi says:

I will surrender myself knowing fully that our police force is under serious pressure from politicians like any other state institutions. I have alerted the US and the United Nations Embassies of the danger that I have found myself in for simply exercising my right to freedom of expression, research and opinion.
It is a fundamental right that every Zimbabwean is entitled to.

Many people have disappeared and many have been jailed for showing dissent and for speaking out against the ills and injustices of the day. I am already a political prisoner and I can’t run away from it. Zimbabweans please pray for me. I know I can be killed through torture or even poisoning while in police cells and jail. But I can’t run away from it.
