An E-tv news reporter and a cameraperson have been arrested at Beitbridge on Friday while covering a protest march against the Zimbabwean elections.
“The two men were released this morning, with thanks to the tireless efforts of the South African Police Service, Home Affairs and Foreign Affairs as they have been locked in talks with the Zimbabwean authories to secure their release that happen early this morning.” Says E-tv’s Nina Callagham.
According to reports reporter Tumaole Mohlaoli, and camerperson Elelewani Rampfumedzi have been given permission to film by South African authorities, but Zimbawean police accused them of straying into their country.
The two were filming on the bridge which is between the South African and Zimbabwean border posts.
