Release Remaining Political Prisoners

FOLLOWING the recent release of Jestina Mukoko, Roy Bennett and other MDC political prisoners from remand prison, it is shocking that the media,  the MDC and other progressive forces are not mentioning and calling for the immediate release of three other political prisoners who are still languishing in jail at the Harare Remand Prison.

Gandi Mudzingwa, Chris Dhlamini and Anderson Manyere are part of some 15 other MDC supporters whose whereabouts still remain unknown after they were allegedly abducted by state security agents late last year.

However, after the release of high profile figures such as Mukoko and Bennett, the media and the MDC have fallen silent as if there are no political prisoners still in remand.
A lot of noise was made by organisations calling for the immediate release of all political prisoners.  
But once Mukoko was released this noise has died down as if nothing has happened.
There is need for pressure on the government to release the remaining political prisoners including those whose whereabouts remain unknown.
