The Zimbabwean Former President Robert Mugabe for the first time responded to a question from journalist Kumbirai Mafunda who sought his comment on the abduction of fellow journalist turned activist Itai Dzamara.
Mugabe convened a press conference at his Blue Roof Mansion in Harare and fielded questions from local and international journalists about a variety of subjects including Monday’s election.
Dzamara was arrested after he called on then-President Mugabe to step down in a petition that was delivered to the presidential Munhumutapa Offices. He was arrested, assaulted and tortured several times for repeated protests at the Africa Unity Square in Harare.
Dzamara was abducted from a barbershop in Glen View, Harare. The four men who abducted him first accused him of stealing a cow before they bundled him into a white Isuzu twincab vehicle.
Mugabe professed ignorance on who might have abducted him and cheekily suggested that maybe Zimbabweans were asking the same people who abducted Dzamara to find him.
