Outrage As Dhama Is Released 24 Hours After Arrest

Dhama was arrested yesterday in connection with drug-related offences. Police announced the arrest on Twitter writing;

In a new Zimbabwe, one of the key issues for the new gvt must be restoring our justice system to its original function and divorcing it from the capture pf Zanu pf. All the current biased judges must never be allowed again to serve any role in the legal fraternity.
