Journalist have been charged

Two of the journalist that were arrested a few weeks ago have been charged. The editor of The Chronicle, Brezhnev Malaba and the author of the story, Nduduzo Tshuma, were charged with defamation.

Zimbabwe Union of Journalists president Matthew Takaona said these charges raised eyebrows because the police had yet to investigate the allegations against their own.

Tshuma wrote a story in February linking the Bulawayo police and the Grain Marketing Board to maize sold on the black market. Neither men have pleaded yet.
