The UK embassy in Zimbabwe has urged the government to investigate the attack on ZINASU President Takudzwa Ngadziore and the journalists who were covering Ngadziore’s presser.
Using the microblogging site Twitter, UK In Zimbabwe said:
Look forward to seeing full investigation carried out by #Zimbabwe authorities into these attacks, including the assault of Takudzwa Ngadziore. Vital that #journalists are able to do their work without fears for their safety #defendmediafreedom @FCDOGovUK https://t.co/BgzFWi4ob4

Ngadziore was addressing a live presser on Friday 101 meters away from Impala Car rental when an unidentified man attacked them and destroyed their equipment.
Ngadziore was handed over to the Police and a Harare Magistrate denied him bail on Monday on the basis that he was not taking the bail system seriously.
