Dzamara Demo Foiled, Cops Impound Cars

POLICE on Saturday morning foiled a car protest by friends of missing pro-democracy activist Itai Dzamara, saying it was illegal.

Friends of the missing journalist-cum activist plotted a demonstration in Harare’s high density suburb of Glenview as a way of putting pressure on authorities to up the search for Dzamara.

National Police Spokesperson Paul Nyathi said the protest was illegal hence it was disrupted leading in three vehicles being impounded.

A convoy of vehicles emblazoned with Dzamara’s images bearing a reward offer for information that could assist in locating him, drove along High Glen road en route to Glenview but were stopped at Glennorah Police station by the cops who immediately impounded some of the cars.

The cops said the vehicles were impounded for disrupting public order and for reckless driving.
