Journalist arrested over voters roll

POLICE on Monday 23 July 2012 arrested Thomas Madhuku, a freelance journalist and detained him at Harare Central Police Station.

Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights member lawyer Tonderai Bhatasara of Mupanga Bhatasara Attorneys, who is representing Madhuku, is currently attending at the Law and Order Section at Harare Central Police Station, where a warned and cautioned statement is likely to be recorded from the freelance journalist and from where details of the charges that he faces will emerge.

According to Bhatasara, the police allege that Madhuku tempered with the country’s voters roll and practised journalism with an expired accreditation card.
