Human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa has confirmed the arrest of popular Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono by the police.

Chin’ono was said to have filmed his arrest before being told to put his phone down.

The outspoken journalist was said to have recently exposed an alleged Covid-19 procurement fraud within the health ministry which later led to the arrest and sacking of Health Minister Obadiah Moyo

President Emmerson Mnangagwa fired Mr Moyo earlier this month for inappropriate conduct over the $60m medicines supply scandal.
