Award winning independent journalist Hopewell Chinono has failed to attend an event to be held in South Africa.
Hopewell Chinono was set to attend a Nat Nakasa Awards gala tomorrow as a guest speaker.
However, his passport is held by the government. The government confiscated his party when he got arrested for spreading fake news about a child who was allegedly killed by the police.
Chinono took to social media to reveal that he won’t be able to attend the event.
“I am saddened to let you know that I won’t be able to attend the Nat Nakasa Awards gala tomorrow in South Africa after the High Court of Zimbabwe failed to make a ruling on my application to have my passport released.
My lawyers have advised me not to make any further comments,” he posted.
