Zimbabwe Republic Police have reportedly arrested around 19 people for violating President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s 21-day lockdown decree.
The decree was announced last week as a measure to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Citizens were ordered to stay in their homes unless they are going out “for essentials services including health and food.”
We present below a video clip circulating on social media of police officers beating the unidentified citizen who is heard saying that they were breaking his leg.
