Zacras Condemns, Police Harrassment Of WeZhira Community Radio Volunteers,

MASVINGO – The police from CID section Masvingo Central have been visiting WeZhira Community Radio initiative in the past week including today 29 June 2015.

They are asking various questions regarding the existence and work of the community radio. On the latest visit today they wanted to know where they got the production equipment and have asked for a full list of the equipment.

They have also asked Wilson Maphosa, one of the volunteers to report to their offices tomorrow 30 June at 10 am for further questioning.

‘We remain concerned with this behavior which has a net effect of instilling fear in community radio practitioners and call upon the police to desist from such activities which contravene the provisions of the constitution’, the Zimbabwe Community Radios Association, a organisation representing community radio initiatives in Zimbabwe said today. by Citizen Journalist- Source-bulawayo24
