More trouble for Opposition Activist Joanna Mamombe in Zimbabwe

MDC Alliance legislator Joanna Mamombe arrested again.

Mamombe and Cecilia Chimbiri were arrested while in the company of their lawyer Jeremiah Bhamu.

They were reporting to the Police in line with their bail conditions.

It is understood that the charges preferred against them by the authorities arise from a press statement they issued outside the Harare Magistrates court on February 25th 2021.
Which contravene the Covid laws that prohibit gatherings.

In the press statement Mamombe castigated the police and called them out as the top violators of human rights in Zimbabwe.

The statement was issued in solidarity with Makomborero Haruzivishe a former student leader and human rights activist who has been languishing in remand prison.

Meanwhile questions have been asked as to why Proffessor Lovemore Madhuku who stood side by side with Mamombe outside the court house while she issued the statement has not also been charged with the same charges preferred against the other activist?

More news to follow as the story develops.
