Activist, Journalist, and filmmaker Hopewell Chin’ono have been transferred to Chikurubhi maximum prison in Harare.

He was transferred after denied bail in the court on Friday under the charges of inciting public violence.

This was reported on the twitter by Lawyer Doug Coultar who says: 

We received info that Hopewell & Jacob were going to be transferred to Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison this evening. Jacob’s lawyer Moses Nkomo went to Remand Prison to verify. He was denied access to them; they were put in leg-irons & put in the truck to be taken to Chikurubi.

Chin’ono was arrested on 23 July and the authorities denied that he was not arrested for exposing corruption but for trying to dislodge a constitutionally established government.
