Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe’s thug Isheanesu Chief Saunyama Dzimbiti has been arrested according to the MISA lawyer representing journalist Simba Sithole.
Dzimbiti who is being accused of threatening Freelance Simbarashe Sithole was elusive to the police and is set to appear in court on Monday.
Sithole’s legal advisor Alice Mujakati confirmed the case.
“We were advised by the police that they have since arrested Dzimbiti and he is set to appear at Bindura magistrates courts on Monday,”Mujakati said.
Ironically Dzimbiti is being represented by Justice Mawere from Gumbo and Associates law firm who had been engaged by Media Institute for Southern Africa (MISA) as watching brief but pulled at the eleventh hour after interviewing Sithole about the case there by showing highest degree of unprofessionalism.
The matter is being closely monitored by MISA and Committee Protection for Journalists (CPJ), internationally recognised Media advocacy initiative’s.
