NewsDay Reporter Hospitalised After Being Assaulted By Police

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:

Reports reaching us indicate that @r_muchenje a reporter with the @NewsDayZimbabwe has been beaten up by the @PoliceZimbabwe in Harare CBD today during the course of her duty. We are told she has been taken to hospital.

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”.

Compliance with these instruments as derived and underpinned by the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (ACHPR) and in sync with the country’s Constitution (Section 61), is critical to the enactment and domestication of democratic media, free expression and access to information laws.

  1. The police is full of barbarians.

    They behave like wild animals.

    And violet the law with impunity.

    Go to Mbare musika, women suffer so much abuse one wonder what the job of the police is?

    We don’t have even a single initiative meant to provide women with better and safe spaces to carry out their livelihoods activities.

    Shame on you ZRP

    You only work to please Zanu through your brutal and barbaric attacks on innocent civilians.
