Hopewell Chin’ono, Fadzayi Mahere, Job Sikhala and Allan Moyo, just to name a few. These are names of the people who have been in and out the courts and jail because of what most would deem exercising their rights.
Though the country has had years with the arrest of top opposition leaders, a new wave of arresting human rights activists has been on the rise. Hopewell Chin’ono who is an award-winning journalist has been on the limelight also took to social media a song a called DEM LOOT which besically means they loot. Considering he exposed the recent looting of public funds by the former Minister of Health Obadiah Moyo, he has gained a large following. Within 24 hours the song was trending on twitter. This is again an example of exercising your rights.
When it comes to rights of arrests and detainment, the so-called keyboard warriors took to twitter and different social platforms to complain about the ill treatment of one Allan Moyo. Allan Moyo has been in prison for over 50 days now, no bail or trial date. Allan Moyo is currently the National Students Union (ZINASU) leader. Outcry from the public is that he gets at least a trial date.
