Students arrested for demanding the release of their leader

These students are today in detention for protesting against the continued detention of their leader


ZRP yesterday arrested nine students who were protesting outside a Magistrate Court in Harare calling for the release of Zinasu leader Takudzwa Ngadziore.

Ngadziore was arrested for taking part in a demo that demanded Impala Car Rentals to release the details of the people who hired a vehicle that was used to abduct MSU student Tawanda Muchehiwa.

The police reportedly rounded up Nancy Njenge, Donald Marevanhema, Talent Jinga, Arnold Mazonde, Mitchell Lieto, Zvikomborero Mumbirimi, Takudzwa Gwaze and John Ncobo and reports say they were driven away in the back of a police vehicle.

Their lawyer Obey Shava said the group would sleep in police custody and they will appear in court today. The students are facing public disorder charges.

Meanwhile, Takudzwa Ngadziore was released on $2 000 bail four days after his arrest.
