DESPITE Harare’s irritation with calls for updates on the search for Itai Dzamara, the European Union Friday said they will continue monitoring progress on the government’s investigation into the issue of the missing journalist.
Last month foreign affairs minister Simbarashe Mumbengwegwi reportedly warned French Ambassador to Zimbabwe Laurent Delahousse, after the western diplomat used his country’s national day commemorations in Harare to call for updates on the search for Dzamara.
Mumbengegwi said Harare was ready to deport foreign diplomats who continued to demand that the authorities should search and find the missing human rights activist.
The minister also suggested that the western diplomats were responsible for the disappearance of Dzamara so that they would tarnish Zimbabwe’s image.
Government also briefed the state media on the issue, claiming the police had done a lot to search for the missing scribe.
But Brussels is still persisting with calls for more updates.
“The EU remains deeply concerned about the continued lack of progress in this case,” said a statement from the western bloc mission in Harare.
“The EU recalls the legal obligation for the authorities to provide regular and thorough progress reports on their search for Dzamara, as ordered by the High Court.”
“The EU notes that it is the responsibility of all respondents in this case, not only the police, to take the necessary measures to ascertain Dzamara’s whereabouts.
“The EU will continue to watch progress on this case closely.”
This Sunday marks the 5th month since Dzamara was abducted by suspected stage agents while having a haircut in Glenview, Harare.
On Friday Dzamara’s wife, kids and brothers held a public birthday commemoration for their missing dear one at the Africa Unity Square which is where he held his public protests against the government. source-newzimbabwe
