Thabita Taona spends second night in police custody

wozaWOZA member, Thabita Taona, is set to spend another night in Harare Central Police Station as Law and Order officers refuse to assign an Investigating Officer to the case.

Until an Investigating Officer is assigned, charges cannot be formally brought against her. Attempts by lawyers to have the case against her speedily dealt with have come to nothing as police are obviously engaged in delaying tactics. She has been allowed to see her lawyer and has received the food brought to her. She has also been interrogated extensively about who else was in the demonstration with her.

The man caught in the cross-fire, Comfort Nyakura, was released last night after his employer confirmed that he had been at work at the time of the demonstration and was merely on his lunch break.
