Doctor Magombeyi found alive in Nyabira.
Doctor Peter Magombeyi found alive in Nyabira 21 miles from Harare.
This follows the action of health workers who handed over a petition to Job Mudenda demanding the return of Magombeyi.
In an interview with Voice of America radio station, he said
“I remember being in a basement and electrocuted, that is what I vividly remember. I, I just don’t remember.”
The economic crisis in Zimbabwe has meant doctors’ salaries have shrunk to just $100 (£80) a month. Many cannot afford to get to work as it costs around $80 to fill up a car with petrol.
“I barely remember anything. I just don’t know.”
Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors’ Association (ZHDA) secretary-general Dr. Mthabisi Bhebhe also confirmed that Dr. Magombeyi is alive. “I have called him and he indicated he is safe and sound. I spoke to him. He is well but still in the bushy area,” he said.
The government has a setup of an investigative commission to look into the alleged abduction.
Meanwhile, however, a spokesperson for President Emerson Mnangagwa dismissed the abduction as “a characteristic propaganda stunt by the opposition and its supporters.”
Besides Magombeyi’s abduction, Four weeks ago, six masked gunmen abducted and beat Zimbabwean comedian and government critic Samantha Kureya(‘Gonyeti’). Another activist, Tatenda Mombeyara, was abducted by eight masked gunmen wielding AK-47 assault rifles.
The abductors accused him of organizing anti-government protests and beat him badly.
However, Magombeyi’s disappearance had generated a storm protest. They vowed not to return to work.
Meanwhile, Lawyers representing the doctor said police denied them permission to have access to their client.
