A human rights lawyer fled his home on Saturday night after suspicious people driving unregistered ex-Japanese cars placed his house under surveillance at around 7 PM.
Martin Mureri of the Matutu and Mureri Legal Practitioners told his TellZim News that he was living in fear as he suspects that the people could be State security agents. He said:
It is true that there were people who were surveying my house on Saturday. They were driving cars that were unmarked and without number plates.
The occupants were taking pictures of my house and I do not know to what end. I did not sleep at home that night because I feared for my life.
I was tipped by my friends that I should be careful and watch my back because the state security agents were looking for me. I do not know why they are looking for me.
Mureri said if he had done something wrong, the police should simply summon him as he is not a difficult man to find.
Mureri recently successfully dragged the government to court over the Ngomahuru Psychiatric Hospital water challenges.
TellZim News also reported sources saying Mureri was being targeted after it emerged that he hosted MDC Alliance officials who were headed to Chilonga on Saturday.
