Missing Zim activist: Church leaders demand meeting with Mugabe

12 February 2016, 19:03

Harare - A church in Zimbabwe has demanded a meeting with President Robert Mugabe over missing human rights activist Itai Dzamara, a report said on Friday.

According to New Zimbabwe, the church wanted Mugabe, 91, to commit state resources to finding the missing activist who was last seen on March 9 2015.

Dzamara, a father of two, was abducted by five men who stormed a barbershop in Glenview, Harare, while he was having a haircut.

Dzamara had been staging protests in Harare's Africa Unity Square, calling on Mugabe to step down.

The Zimbabwe Devine Destiny church leader, Bishop Ancelimo Magaya, said they were looking forward to the meeting with Mugabe, adding that the intention was to discuss plans to "speed up" the search for the former journalist.

"We want this issue to be escalated to the head of state and we are actually ready to go and see him now as church leadership," Magaya was quoted saying.

On Tuesday, Dzamara's family and supporters commemorated 11 months since his disappearance.
