The CCC had apologised to Ruvimbo following the incident.
According to a statement issued by ZUJ, there has been an increase in the number of attacks and assaults on journalists.
“The increasing number of our members who are being harassed at political gatherings by different political parties is worrying and should not be condoned. Journalism is not a crime and all journalists in the country should be allowed to carry out their duties without any encumbrance”.
IFJ Secretary General Anthony Bellanger said the assault was “another manifestation of the despicable acts that security officers meted out to journalists who are simply doing their job to inform the public. Such actions must be condemned and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. The Government of Zimbabwe must do everything possible to guarantee the safety and security of journalists and media workers."
