3. Parliamentary Honour for Zimbabwe Reporter
However, he continues to report human rights abuses and highlight the problems that Zimbabweans face, despite threats from the regime.

His citation said: On a weekly basis he deals with general issues of repression, as well as almost daily human rights violations.

Specifically, he wrote about the plight of farm workers in 2001 and as a result was arrested and charged. The case is still pending.

Last month, he was arrested and charged, together with Iden Wetherell (editor), Vincent Kahiya (news editor) and reporter Itai Dzamara for writing about Mugabes commandeering of an Air Zimbabwe plane to holiday in the Far East.
