The case of the disappeared activist in Zimbabwe

Mail and Guardian Article

This Friday, March 9, will be three years to the day that my brother disappeared. This Friday, the “anniversary” of him vanishing from our lives, is a dark day for my family. It represents a decayed government, a retrogressive system and a system which does not welcome criticism. 

Itai Dzamara is a prominent journalist and organiser of the Occupy Africa Unity Square, a sit-in launched in October 2014 to demand accountability from the Zimbabwean government for its reported “failure to satisfy the needs of its people.”

Human rights defenders in Zimbabwe are systematically targeted and subjected to arbitrary detention, arrest, disappearance and torture.
