Dzamara’s wife and brother, who were to address the expected crowd at the park where Dzamara launched public protests against the excesses of dictator Robert Mugabe’s regime.
Dzamara’s family, who were going to make a public appeal for the activist’s return had to change plans and addressed journalists at the nearby Media Centre.
Patson Dzamara rejected claims by CIO operatives that his brother was hiding in Botswana. He expressed hope that his brother was still alive and urged his captors to free him.
