Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage  Minister  Kazembe Kazembe's thug Isheanesu Aka Chief Saunyama Dzimbiti is on the run after threatening to assault Freelance  journalist  Simbarashe Sithole. 

Sithole's  legal advisor Alice Mujakati confirmed the case.

"I can confirm that the police have began investigating  the case and today they advised me and my client that they have since summoned Dzimbiti who said he was not around and would surrender himself to the police anytime soon." Mujakati said.

Allegations  are that on June 5  Dzimbiti called Sithole and threatened  to assault  him before insulting him over corruption cases reported by the scribe in Kazembe's  Mazowe West Constiuency. 

The case is being closely monitored by Media Institute for Southern Africa  (MISA) and Committee Protection for Journalists (CPJ).
