Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday called on the Zimbabwe government to “release all political prisoners”, heaping fresh pressure on President Emmerson Mnangagwa who was accused last week of launching an “unprecedented crackdown on dissent” by Catholic bishops.

Clinton, the wife of former U.S. president Bill Clinton, used Twitter to call out the Zimbabwe government.

“I’m calling for the government of Zimbabwe to release all political prisoners, including Godfrey Kurauone, who represent the country’s future. Justice demands it,”: she tweeted.

Kurauone, an MDC Alliance councillor in Masvingo, was arrested for allegedly singing a song denouncing Mnangagwa on July 31 – and has been held without bail since. His family says he has a chronic condition and is being denied access to a doctor>chaosafrica
