The family of pro-democracy activist, Itai Dzamara who disappeared without a trace in March 2015 has claimed that President Emmerson Mnangagwa has avoided a meeting to discuss the disappearance.
Itai’s younger brother, Patson said that the family has written several letters to President Mnangagwa to no avail. He said:
We have tried to meet him soon after the November coup 2017 and his inauguration but to no avail.
Letters and requests to meet Mnangagwa have hit a brick wall. No letter has been responded to and no request to meet him has been accepted.
We hoped that the change of driving hands in Zanu PF would help us get closure somehow but unfortunately that has not been the case.
We have consistently stated that the morbid act of Itai’s abduction was masterminded and executed by the military intelligence.
The failure to resolve this matter by the so-called new dispensation led by ED only reveals that there is nothing new about it.
We have approached ED and other relevant ministries and they have literally stone-walled us out. It is sad and unfortunate.
Itai Dzamara was reportedly abducted by five armed men who drove an unmarked vehicle in Glen View. The men are suspected to be State security agents. He has not been seen since the abduction.
