SA journalists stopped at Zim border

Two 702 Eyewitness News journalists were expelled from Zimbabwe after they tried to enter the country at the Beit Bridge border post on Friday afternoon, the station said.

Journalists Jean Jacques Cornish and Sheldon Morais were detained and questioned but were released after more than three-and-a-half hours.

Their passports and other personal belongings were also confiscated but later returned.

Eyewitness News Johannesburg editor Katy Katopodis said she was disappointed that the pair were not allowed into the country to cover the outcome of the country’s historic election but was relieved they were not jailed.—Sapa
