Zimbabwe: Award-winning author Tsitsi Dangarembga freed on bail

Award-winning Zimbabwean author Tsitsi Dangarembga was released on bail in Harare on Saturday following her arrest for participating in anti-corruption protests. «I'm happy to be out in the fresh air,» Dangarembga said upon release. The 61-year-old author who won awards for her literary works was charged with intent to incite public violence and for breaching coronavirus health regulations after staging a demonstration against President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government in Harare last Friday. Mnangagwa rose to power in a disputed July 2018 election following a military coup that overthrew President Robert Mugabe, who had ruled Zimbabwe since 1980.
