STUDENTS LEADER NGADZIORE BUNDLED UP BY SECRET AGENTS IN DAYLIGHT
HARARE – Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) leader Takudzwa Ngadziore held a press conference on Friday – 101 meters from the Impala rental car – but plainclothes gunmen arrived in three vehicles and disrupted the press conference.
They beat Ngadziore severely and also attacked journalists.
The men, believed to be state security agents, then handed Ngadziore over to uniformed police, who had stood aside during the attack on the students and journalists.
He was later arrested and taken to Harare Central Police Station, although the charges against him are unclear.
The leader of ZINASU was then arrested and accused of having participated in an illegal demonstration.
Nine students were arrested while protesting outside a court in Harare where Ngadziore was released on bail.
One of his bail conditions was that he should not come within 100 yards of Impala.
Unions representing journalists condemned the raid and a number of media outlets reported that their equipment had been damaged or stolen.
