Dr Peter Magombeyi, a medical doctor and acting president of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA), was abducted on the night of 14 September. Three unidentified armed men captured him at his home in Budiriro, Harare. Dr Magombeyi had been receiving threats from suspected members of the Central Intelligence Organization. They warned him to stop his involvement in a doctor’s strike. Failure to do so would result in his enforced disappearance.
Following a habeas corpus application, the High Court ordered the Minister of Home Affairs and the Minister of State for National Security to determine the whereabouts of Dr Peter Magombeyi and to set up a team of investigators to search for him. The two ministers were also ordered to advertise details of the missing ZHDA President. However, no action has been taken to date and Dr Magombeyi’s whereabouts remain unknown. Amnesty International fears that he is at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.
