ZimEye is crowdsourcing ideas on how the jailed journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono can be best assisted, following the several efforts engaging the government on Friday. ZimEye grilled the Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi and the prison authorities on why the journalist was harassed inside prison over prison uniform. He was delayed from travelling to court for his hearing in the morning. We also undertook efforts to investigate the circumstances of physical abuse he was subjected to. (Watch video below)
We make an appeal to the community for ways and means the scribe can be best assisted during this time.
Chin’ono was remanded in custody and is on trial for allegedly obstructing the course of justice over two tweets.
