The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has condemned the arrest of the secretary-general of the Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ), Raymond Majongwe.
Majongwe used his Twitter handle to speak about his arrest earlier on Wednesday. He said:
Am getting detained at Mbare Police with my two sons who were assaulted by police at Mbudzi roundabout this morning. Sad things go like this.
Commenting on Majongwe’s arrest, ARTUZ said:
We condemn the arrest of Raymond Majongwe by the overzealous the Police who have since become the number one public enemy due to their excesses. We demand the unconditional release of cde Majongwe.
