Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono has been denied bail. He was arrested again on the 3rd of November, for the second time in four months.

Chin’ono was arrested for allegedly breaching his bail conditions by tweeting about a gold smuggling scandal.

ZimLive reported that Chin’ono was denied bail by a magistrate in Harare on Thursday morning.

He had initially been arrested in July on charges of inciting public violence ahead of planned anti-government protests but was freed in September on bail.
