Zimbabwe - ITUC Africa general secretary detained at Harare International Airport

On 26 February 2019, Kwasi Adu Amankwah, ITUC Africa general secretary, was removed by security forces from his hotel in Harare at 2 a.m. and taken to Harare International Airport where he was detained. Officials refused to allow a lawyer from ZCTU to see Amankwah at the airport. Adu Amankwah had traveled to Zimbabwe to show solidarity with the Zimbabwean Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) and Zimbabwean workers. He was scheduled to meet with the ZCTU leadership and the Zimbabwean Ministry of Labour to discuss, in particular, the withdrawal of all charges against Japhet Moyo and Peter Mutasa, ZCTU leaders, who had called for a peaceful three-day stay-away action from 14 to 16 January 2019.
