Arrested journos, MDC employee released

Two journalists, Andreason Manyere and Nkosana Dhlamini, a Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) employee, Diana Nyikadzino and two others who were arrested yesterday, 30 October 2010 at St John's Retreat in Harare South have been released. The five were released from the Harare Central Police Law and Order section after paying fines of USD20 each for 'criminal nuisance'.

Reports received from an observer are that Manyere and Dlamini were arrested after participants demanded that the duo be ejected from the meeting and apprehended as they allegedly had no authority to cover proceedings. However, Honourable Piniel Denga, who is the co-team leader of the Team 9 Mashonaland East which presided over the meeting highlighted that, contrary to assertions by participants, the two journalists were authorised to cover the meeting.

The same group of participants also called for the arrest of Nyikadzino accusing her of disrupting the meeting after she contributed on the National Youth Service.
