Statement on the Abduction of ZHDA Acting President Peter Magombeyi

ARTUZ condemns in strongest terms the abduction of ZDHA President Peter Mugombeya. As a Union we strongly feel and suspect that the abductors are State apparatus targeting the leadership of ZHDA for demanding a living wage.

ARTUZ Leadership has also been target of abductions and torture at the hands of State agents.

As a Union we are not going to fold hands as the State continues to abduct Activists and perceived Government opponents as such we are calling on all our membership to join the demonstration that has been called by ZDHA at Parirenyatwa Hospital today.

Injure one Injure all. (Solidarity shall remain a key component of our Struggle).
