Tsvangirai Barred

Now Daily

Movement for Democratic-Tsvangirai leader Morgan Tsvangirai (in cap, above) was on Friday barred from visiting inmates at Chikurubi maximum security prison. The ban however gave dictator Robert Mugabe’s strongest rival an unexpected boost as it sparked a flood of sympathetic comments on social media. Several pro-democracy activists are detained at the prison following a series of anti-government demonstrations.

Tsvangirai’s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed the incident.

“When he insisted on using his ID as ordinary visitor to Chikurubi Maximum prison early this morning, the prison officers insisted President Morgan Tsvangirai was ‘not an ordinary citizen’. They said he had to get clearance from head office,” Tamborinyoka said.
