A man has been arrested after Zimbabwe’s president vowed to bring those behind the beating of a civilian by security forces during protests to justice.
The African nation’s Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting issued a statement confirming the arrest after Emmerson Mnangagwa said he was “appalled” by what he saw in a Sky News report.
Authorities said the man held – known only as Constable Makumire – was a suspended officer who had been on bail following theft charges when the incident took place.
It added in a further statement that the arrested officer was now assisting police with further investigations into the incident.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police has made inroads into a case of assault by security agents, involving a handcuffed person along Chiremba Road, Harare, as seen in a video clip by Sky News,” the ministry said.
“Constable Makumire is seen in the video clad in civilian attire with a satchel strapped on his back assaulting the victim.
