Zimbabwe Journalist Arrested March 26, 2007

Posted by publicpolitics in Uncategorized.

Apparently, this trainee asked the wrong question and was detained. There is no word on whether the intern is still in detention. This is one of those arrests that it would be easy to forget, given the media prominence of the official Zimbabwean opposition and the chaos in the country. I would appreciate any help on follow up and verification.

A trainee journalist with state media was arrested in Zimbabwe for allegedly asking why police did not feel guilty for killing an opposition activist, it was claimed Sunday.

The privately-owned Standard claimed 23-year-old Tapiwa Chininga was arrested last Saturday, a week after police shot and killed a Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) activist in Highfield township after an aborted prayer rally.
