Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa says the government is also looking for answers as to the whereabouts of journalist and political activist, Itai Dzamara.
Mnangagwa told the Zanu PF Midlands Provincial Co-ordinating Committee meeting that everyone regrets what happened to Dzamara and the government is looking for answers.
The Vice President said every single citizen must be protected by the state and security agents including the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) are all out trying to find out what could have happened to Dzamara.
“We all regret what happened to Itai Dzamara and as government we have no answers. Both the police and the CIO are all out to try and find out what happened. Every single citizen must be protected by the state,” said Mnangagwa.
Some political parties are unscrupulously trying to use the disappearance of Dzamara for their gains and Mnangagwa says it is wrong to do so.
“We appeal to churches, including prophets, who can assist in finding Dzamara to do so as everyone is worried and concerned about him,” he added.
Itai Dzamara, a journalist and political activist, disappeared on the 8th of March 2015.
The High Court has since ordered state to regularly report to Dzamara’s lawyers and family about the progress made in the search and the investigation into his disappearance.
