Durban - After armed police raided his home and his office early on Thursday, Edmund Kudzayi, the newly appointed editor of the state-controlled Sunday Mail newspaper, handed himself over to police later in the day.
Police confiscated equipment from his office, but have so far not laid any charges against him.
Police are also looking for Dumisani Muleya, the editor of a privately owned newspaper, The Independent, owned by Trevor Ncube, who also publishes two daily newspapers in Zimbabwe and the Mail & Guardian in South Africa.
Police visited Muleya’s office on Thursday but were told he was on leave.
Muleya told online publication New Zimbabwe.com by telephone from Harare: “I’ve no business with the police, and until they state specifically why they want me, I will not be turning myself in.”
