BREAKING: Two more human rights activists arrested at RGM Airport
ZIMBABWEAN state security authorities are reported to have detained two more human rights activists at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport upon their arrival from abroad.
Sitabile Dewa and Rita Nyampinga (pictured) were nabbed by at least seven men in suits who are currently interrogating them at the arrival section of the airport.
Their arrest comes after five other human rights defenders were arrested at the same airport last week and charged with plotting to overthrow the government of President Emmerson Mnangagwa after they had attended workshops in the Maldives.
The state alleged that they have been receiving training on how to subvert a constitutionally elected government.
