The High Court has dismissed an abduction case of a Mabvuku woman who went missing on January 6 after she was allegedly arrested by unidentified uniformed soldiers for breaking lockdown laws.

In an application before the court for the unconditional release of Evelyn Kanamo, Justice Pisirai Kwenda ruled that his hands were tied to handle the case due to lack of evidence linking the army to the alleged kidnapping.

Kwenda dismissed the application last week after the army successfully contested evidence brought by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights.

The army said they had not deployed soldiers in that area on the said date.
