Your Excellency Minister Kembo Mohadi,


The Norwegian Writers in Prison Committee is deeply concerned by the abduction of political activist and former journalist Itai Dzamara and subsequent lack of progress in the investigation into his disappearance. Dzamara was abducted by five unidentified assailants at a barber’s shop in Harare, Zimbabwe, on 9 March 2015. We call on the Zimbabwean authorities to clarify the fate of Itai Dzamara and bring the perpetrators to justice.


Yours sincerely,


Dr. Jørgen Lorentzen
Member of Writers in Prison Committee
