UK in Zimbabwe has said it is concerned by the arrest of prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono, MDC Alliance Vice Chairman Job Sikhala, and MDC Alliance Spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere over a tweet that was not true according to ZRP.

UK in Zimbabwe also raised concern about Harare Mayor Jacob Mafume’s continued detention since 11 December. Using microblogging site Twitter UK In Zimbabwe tweeted:

Following the arrests of Fadzayi Mahere & Job Sikhala after Hopewell Chin’ono’s arrest Friday. Concerned too by reports of ill health of Jacob Mafume who’s held in Harare. Important the law is equally applied to all & rights of prisoners upheld incl during C19 #ActiononReform

The embassy which is using the hashtag #ActiononReform tweeted over the weekend when Chin’ono was arrested and said:

Concerned to hear Hopewell Chin’ono will remain in custody for two more nights following his re-arrest on Friday. We continue to follow this case closely #ActiononReform

    Strange bunch these UK diplomats. Could not care a damn when a UK born UK passport holder was detained and imprisoned for two years but now are concerned about a local.

    This regime must go. The citizens abuse can not go on forever. We do not live in China or any other area but here where we expect the only thing we fought for . Freedom . Instead for so long this continuous abuse of our rights. ZanuPF must go.
