Bustop TV comedienne Samantha Gonyeti Kureya has reportedly been abducted. Bustop TV reported the abduction on Twitter this evening (21 August 2019).

Bustop TV is known for political satire videos. During this year’s Heroes Day celebrations the crew was attacked by Zanu PF thugs who accused them of being pro Nelson Chamisa and against President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Said Bustop TV:

MISA Zimbabwe, a media organisation said they are assisting with the search:

Earlier this year, Samantha and her colleague were temporarily detained and fined for a 2016 comic skit which the Police said amounted to public nuisance. During their detention, the pair were warned that @bustoptv skits were getting political.
