The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has deployed an anti-riot unit at Avenues Clinic to stop Dr Peter Magombeyi from leaving the hospital for South Africa to seek further medical care.
The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights lawyers say about 100 anti-riot police officers have been deployed at the hospital.
This is in contempt of High Court judge Justice Happias Zhou who ruled that Dr Magombeyi should be allowed to leave for South Africa.
