Promise Mkwananzi flees the country

Citizens Coalition for Change spokesman Promise Mkwananzi has fled the country after police offered a US$1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

In a Thursday post on X, Mkwananzi announced he had left the country following a police manhunt.

“Following protracted efforts to get me detained for no crime other than speaking out against a sham election, I have summarily left the country,” he said.

“I will continue to do my work & fight for change from my new station until the Zimbabwean crisis has been resolved which is not long, trust me.

“Once again, I wish to reiterate that I have no pending cases with the police. I was cleared of all the flimsy charges previously placed against me.

“My resolve to fight for change runs deeper than they can imagine. Let us remain peaceful, vigilant & focused on ensuring that Zimbabwe holds a fresh, free & election.”
