News Day reporter, Ruvimbo Muchenje has reportedly been hospitalised after she was beaten by police officers in Harare this Saturday.
The sad development was announced on Twitter this afternoon by New Zimbabwe who posted saying:
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229

This comes at a time when members of the media are urging the “Zimbabwean government to comply with regional and continental instruments which are an essential condition to the “ongoing” media law reform processes”.
