The Media Institute of Southern Africa has condemned the arrest of freelance journalist Dumisani Zvandasara for using a 2019 Zimbabwe Media Commission-issued press card.

According to MISA Zimbabwe, Zvandasara was arrested on Thursday last week while taking pictures of municipal police, and members of the police and army, who were raiding vendors in the city centre in Kwekwe.

He was later released without charges.

Following his release, MISA Zimbabwe Kwekwe Advocacy Committee chairperson, Kudakwashe Zvarayi, held a meeting with police in Kwekwe who made a commitment to ensure that journalists conduct their work without hindrance.
