Zimrights National Director and board member of the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum, Okay Machisa, was arrested and later released by Harare police as reports of arrests of rights activists and Movement for Democratic Change supporters grow.
The Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum programmes Coordinator, Brian Penduka, states that Machisa was organising a photo exhibition entitled 'Reflections' at the Gallery Delta’.
Penduka says that the exact charge is unclear but that the police have confiscated the photos that were to go on show. The exhibition included a wide range of photos taken during the violent 2008 election period, including pictures of the victims.
