The police arrested Fidelis Mudimu, Zachariah Godi, James Zidzimu, Tafadzwa Gesa, Penn Bruno and Daily News photo-journalist Watson Ufumeli, whom they have taken into custody at Harare Central Police Station.

About 20 police officers led by notorious Detective Assistant Inspector Henry Dowa and Detective Assistant Inspector Murira raided the CSU offices around lunch time armed with a search warrant justifying their raid as aimed to recover “offensive and subversive material” from the organisation’s offices in Harare.
