Forty-four members of the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (Galz) were arrested on Saturday at their Milton Park offices in Harare where they had gathered to launch their report on violations. They were however, released yesterday.
However, Harare provincial police spokesperson Chief Inspector James Sabau said: “They were only taken for screening. We had received information that people we were looking for were there. So it’s false to say they were arrested and that they slept in the cells.”

But Galz claimed their members were arrested after 15 anti-riot police officers stormed their meeting.
“Galz deplores the arrest of its 44 members who had attended the launch of the Galz Violations Report and a briefing on the second draft of the Zimbabwe constitution on 11 August 2012 at the Galz offices,” Galz said in a statement.
MORE ACTION MAY BE NEEDED ON ZIMBABWE
“Four police officers attempted to gain entry into the premises before calling for back up where about fifteen (anti) riot squad members descended on the office and effected arrest. Thirty one men and thirteen women members were detained overnight at Harare Central
