Human rights lawyer and activist Doug Coltart said Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) president Peter Mutasa is currently missing.
Mutasa and Pastor Evan Mawarire called on Zimbabweans to embark on a strike starting Monday January 14. Mawarire has since been arrested and is expected to appear in court tomorrow for inciting public violence. At the time, Coltart said Mutasa had not been seen over the past 24 hours. Said Coltart:
