Soldiers Detain, Interrogate NewsDay Journalist In Kuwadzana

MISA Zimbabwe notes that NewsDay journalist Tinotenda Samukange was detained for close to three hours by soldiers in Harare’s high-density suburb of Kuwadzana on Friday 3 August 2018.

Samukange was on his way home when he was informed that the military had been deployed in the high-density suburb. Upon approaching the area, soldiers detained him despite identifying himself as a journalist. During his detention, he was instructed not to take pictures as the army executed its operation.

MISA Zimbabwe calls upon the government of Zimbabwe to stop attacks on the media as journalists carry out their constitutionally guaranteed duties.

MISA Zimbabwe urges members of the media community and the public to report any media violations on the MISA Hotline: 0784 437 338.
