At least 80 supporters of an opposition party in Zimbabwe remain in detention after they were arrested in the city of Masvingo over the weekend. According to the BBC, they have rounded up ahead of a rally in the capital Harare on Sunday, which launched the Citizens Coalition for Change party’s campaign for parliamentary by-elections next month. It remains unclear if they have been charged. The CCC is led by Nelson Chamisa, the former leader of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change.
