Zimbabwean Journalists Attacked And Equipment Destroyed At Press Conference

Suspected Stage agents on Friday assaulted several journalists who were attending a media conference hosted by Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) president Takudzwa Ngadziore near Impala Car Rental in Harare.

Godwin Mangudya, Thomas Madhuku, James Jemwa, Bernard Mpofu and Munashe Chokodza were attacked and their equipment confiscated and destroyed.

The men who attacked ZINASU members and journalists were in plain clothes.

A picture of Ngadziore lying on the ground after the attack, battered and bruised went viral yesterday.

National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told NewsDay that he was not aware of the assault and “would find out”.

In a statement following the unprovoked attack on students and journalists, the Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (ZimRights) condemned the barbaric incident.

ZimRights also demanded that Impala Car Rentals provide information and help expose those who were responsible for the abductions that have been taking place in the country.

An Impala Car Rental vehicle was used in the abduction of a Midlands State University (MSU) student, Tawanda Muchehiwa in July.

  1. These are the very people who abduct citizens, beat up, abuse or kill. Those people, especially the one who initiated the attack, should be found, the evidence is there on public domain. If what they were doing was lawful, why not formally arrest in a dignified manner? Why do as they did? Is that how it should be executed? These are some of the many rights that are violated daily with impunity. Where is the Herald by the way? Of late they have been very active in finding ‘wrongdoers’ video and visual evidence. Let’s see them investigate this case.
