Trump Wades Into Zimbabwe, Hits Mugabe Over Arrest Of Pastors

Trump Wades Into Zimbabwe, Hits Mugabe Over Arrest Of Pastors File photo



President Donald Trump's administration has waded into the deterioration of Zimbabwe's human rights situation, following the jailing of two prominent clerics critical of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's leadership.

Trump has not minced his words on some of the world's dictators, telling them to reform or leave office.

The US embassy in Harare issued a statement condemning the arrest of evangelical pastors Evan Mawarire and Phillip Patrick Mugadza, saying that freedom of expression was now under attack in Zimbabwe. 

Mawarire was arrested last week at the Harare International Airport on his surprise return to the southern African country after spending six months in self-imposed exile, mostly in the United States. He was subsequently charged with attempting to subvert Mugabe's constitutionally elected government. 

On the other hand, Mugadza continues to be incarcerated following his prophecy that Mugabe would die on October 17 this year.

Spokesperson of the US embassy in Harare, David Mcguire, described the arrest of Mawarire and Mugadza as "unwarranted".

Information Minister Christopher Mushohwe was not immediately available for comment.
