This is to inform you that Jenni Williams and 73
WoZA women demonstrating peacefully in Bulawayo today were arrested and are
being held in Donnington Police. They will most probably not be released until
after the weekend. They will be held in inhumane conditions, over-crowded and
in the middle of winter with no blankets - sleeping on concrete floors.
Reports have it that toilets are non existent - save for a bucket in the cell
where there is absolutely no privacy. They are also not allowed to wear shoes
and may only have one article of clothing.
Their crime? Demonstrating their democratic right
to protest at the undemocratic way this country is being run. They are also
holding 43 other WoZA women and 7 babies since Tuesday.
