President Morgan Tsvangirai today visited the Dzamara family in Glen View in commiseration with their plight following the abduction and disappearance of journalist-cum-activist, Itai Dzamara.

President Tsvangirai met Dzamara’s brother, his mother, wife and children and told them the party stood in solidarity with them in this sad hour.

The MDC leader urged the family to continue to place their faith in God and narrated how he was abducted in almost similar circumstances and spent three weeks without anyone knowing of his whereabouts.

He only resurfaced at a police station after three weeks of brutal torture and harassment. President Tsvangirai later visited the barbershop where Dzamara was abducted where his barber narrated how two men arrived in a car with a folded number plate.

He said they stormed the shop, identified themselves as police and accused Dzamara of stock-theft before they handcuffed him and bundled him into their car.

The MDC leader said it was ironic that the State was saying it was the MDC that abducted Dzamara when in fact, he was arrested by people who identified themselves as police. He said the MDC held the State culpable and responsible for the whole sordid saga.
