Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe’s thug Isheanesu Aka Chief Saunyama Dzimbiti is on the run after threatening to assault Freelance journalist Simbarashe Sithole.

Sithole’s legal advisor Alice Mujakati confirmed the case.

“I can confirm that the police have began investigating the case and today they advised me and my client that they have since summoned Dzimbiti who said he was not around and would surrender himself to the police anytime soon.” Mujakati said.

Allegations are that on June 5 Dzimbiti called Sithole and threatened to assault him before insulting him over corruption cases reported by the scribe in Kazembe’s Mazowe West Constiuency.

The case is being closely monitored by Media Institute for Southern Africa (MISA) and Committee Protection for Journalists (CPJ).
