By Jane Mlambo| Following his release from Chikurubi maximum prison last night after being granted bail by the High Court, journalist Hopewell Chin’ono has vowed to continue fighting against corruption saying his continued persecution renews his drive against corruption.
Posting on his Twitter account soon after release, Chin’ono hailed his legal team for securing his freedom.
He also thanked citizens for standing by him during his ‘political persecutions’.
“Thanks to my legal team of Beatrice Mtetwa, @DougColtart, Gift Mtisi assisted by Chris Mhike & @ZLHRLawyers.
I would like to thank all citizens local & beyond who stood with me during my political persecution.
Each time I am persecuted, my drive against corruption is renewed,” said Chin’ono.
He was arrested more than two weeks ago charged with obstruction.
Chin’ono had a pending case where he is being charged with inciting public violence.
