Itai Dzamara who hand-delivered 'step down' letter to Mugabe finally gets beaten heavily THE editor of The News Leader newspaper, Itai Dzamara has been severely beaten by Zanu-PF hooligans before he was nabbed by Harare police for staging protest marches calling for President Mugabe to step down over the country's comatose economy.

Dzamara who launched protest marches dubbed "Occupy Africa Unity Square" is a fortnight ago is said to be locked at Harare Central Police Station and has been there since 11AM today, according to our sources.

Efforts to contact Dzamara on his mobile phone were fruitfulness, a confirmation that indicates that he might be in the dock. Police Spokesperson Charity was also not readily available to confirm Dzamara's arrest.

It is not the first time that Dzamara has been locked as he has been arrested and interrogated several times for his "infamous" project. Despite the arrests, the unstoppable activist has vowed to continue with the protest marches until Mugabe steps down.

According to preliminary reports, Dzamara and other protesters were mobbed by Zanu-PF supporters at the Parliament Building in Harare minutes after Mugabe had closed the official opening of the second session of the 8th parliament today.

Sources told us that the group lead by Dzamara began their marches raising placards denouncing Mugabe and urging him to immediately resign.


The protest is said to have irked Zanu-PF supporters leading to the attack. Police intervened and arrested Dzamara and his accomplices.

Dzamara, a practicing journalist has vowed to abandon his profession in order to concentrate on anti-Mugabe demos synonymous with those held in Egypt and Tunisia culminating in leaders leaving office.

In his petition Dzamara urged Mugabe not to unleash security details on demonstrating people but his plea has fallen on deaf ears as police continue to harass and arrest anyone staging mass protests.

The unrestrained journo has also launched intensive campaigns on Social Media and has attracted a massive following in the past few weeks.

Our problems were caused by Americans and the British.

President Mugabe was labelled a terrorist worldwide in 1980. He need friends in the international community to put his name on the map. He played the soft ball and has achieved that and its now difficult for him to leave the political office.

We voted for him in 1980 because of his command of the Queen's Language and the nicely cut English suits. We were wrong, the man doesn't understand that others need a chance. He shall continue to rule even after death.

@Selele! In 1980 the Americans and the British supported President Mugabe. All things being equal the late Joshua Nkomo was supposed to be president. Nkomo was only allowed to campaign in Matebeleland, in other provinces he was labelled "bhuru rengozi" and prevented from campaigning. The British and Americans who were supervising the 1980 elections saw this and underplayed it. They didn't record it as a gross violation. Apatheid South Africa was baying for President Mugabe's head, so he desperately needed protection from Americans and the British. That's how America and Britain helped to propel President Mugabe. Daily News once published President Mugabe with the Queen in the Queen's chariot and he's the only African President who has achieved that. Did the point arrive home?

Nkomo lost well before 1978 when Zanla emphatically drove Zipra out of Mashonaland, especially the western parts of Mash. Nkomo's support base was reduced to Matebeleland and a partly Midlands. There is no way Zapu could have won a fair election in 1980, no. Zvimwe tingataure but not nyaya iyi. Nkomo also knew that Zimbabweans voted on tribal lines.
Of course Zipra could not efectively campaign in Mashonaland but the reasons are at hand.
