Police have arrested Daily News reporter

Police have arrested Daily News reporter, Xolisani Ncube over a story he did on Local Government minister, Ignatious Chombo. When I visited Xolisani, the officers said they were also after Daily News editor Stanley Gama.

It is unfortunate that Mugabe has criminalised our profession. The story in question is about Chombo bragging about his wealth to representatives of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The story was published on November 10 this year.

The arrest means the young boy has to spend the weekend in cells and obviously be released on Monday after paying maybe a $50 or $100 bail. This is outright percecution of journalists. This is not the Zimbabwe we want. God help us.
