Mutodi was speaking after there were widespread that the union leader was abducted and tortured by suspected state agents over leading an ongoing strike where teachers are demanding better wages.

On Wednesday night Masaraure, was abducted from his Harare home by a group of armed men, taken to a secluded place, then stripped and beaten.
His union said the assailants warned him to stop mobilising teachers to strike.
The abduction of Masaraure came hours after the European Union (EU) held talks with the Zimbabwe government, the first in a series of meetings aimed at ending years of strained relations over Harare's alleged rights abuses.
