ZIMBABWE – Sunday Mail editor Mabasa Sasa and reporters Tinashe Farawo and Brian Chitemba were arrested on Monday and were held at a Harare police station, Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) national spokeswoman Charity Charamba told a news conference today.

Ms Charamba said: “The falsehoods have dented and tarnished the image of the police organisation for no apparent reason.

“The story does not only affect ZRP but the entire security apparatus.”

The journalists are expected to appear in court tomorrow to face the charges which could result in sentences of up to 20 years.

Charamba said police had since August this year recovered 70 elephant tusks, 30 kg of ivory, 100 kg of cyanide and arrested eight people linked to poaching.
