Itai Dzamara, a respected journalist and pro-democracy activist, founder and leader of Occupy Africa Unity Square Movement, was abducted on 9th March 2015 in Harare. The movement had its origins on 17th October 2014 when Dzamara submitted a petition to Robert Mugabe over the "failure of your government to properly and effectively manage the country". He was seen being bundled into an unmarked car by five unidentified people. His whereabouts are still unknown.


“Itai was the breadwinner and his wife Sheffra has to survive through help from family members. The couple have two children, a boy of 7 and a girl of 3, and the kids are traumatised,” Patson Dzamara, Itai’s brother said.


Please make a donation to assist Itai’s family. Your donation could help in buying food for the children and paying for legal fees.  After his abduction, his wife approached the High Court in Harare to force the police and the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) to search for her husband.
