2 journalists arrested in Harare (later released)

A total of 19 people, including 2 journalists, were arrested by armed police Wednesday as they demonstrated for the removal of the illegal commission running Harare and against a recent 1 000 percent increase in water charges imposed by the commission. The 17 protestors are all members of The Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA). The 2 journalists are Ndamu Sandu of The Standard private newspaper and freelance journalist Godwin Mangudya. Both were covering the demonstration and it is not clear why they were arrested.
