Police in Harare yesterday assaulted and detained Alpha Media Holdings online reporter Tapiwa Zivira for four hours, accusing him of recording video footage of their ongoing blitz, against touts operating in the central business district.
This is the fourth incident in two months that involves harassment of journalists by law enforcements agents.
Both Information minister Jonathan Moyo and police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba could not be reached for comment last night.
