Roselyn Hanzi the Executive Director at the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights who have immediately gone into action following the arrest of journalist Hopewell Chinono says that the renowned scribe has been arrested for contempt of court following statements he made on social media when he was released on bail after his first arrest.

“Hopewell Chinono is charged with violating sec 182(1)(a) or (b) of Criminal Code. Allegation is he tweeted ‘On day of bail hearing CJ was seen leaving court in light of what has been said by judges what does this say’ said Hanzi.

Below is the Tweet that got Chinono in trouble.
