Kwasi Adu Amankwa Detained At RGMI Airport, Set To Be Deported

The General Secretary of the African Regional Organisation of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Kwasi Adu-Amankwah was on Tuesday morning dragged from his hotel room in Harare by authorities soon after his arrival.

Adu-Amankwah was on a visit to meet the leaders of local labour body, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU). He is set to be deported.

This was revealed by the ZCTU in a statement:

Secretary-General Kwasi Adu Amankwa faces deportation, detained at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare. He was dragged from a local hotel and taken back to the airport soon after arriving early this morning. He was scheduled to meet ZCTU.

The government of Zimbabwe has shown evident distaste towards international labour leaders. A few years back, the then leader of the Confederation of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) Zwelinzima Vavi was deported soon after arriving from South Africa.
