Leopold Munhende a journalist with NewZimbabwe.Com was on 23 August 2019 reportedly arrested at the New Government Complex in Harare while covering a demonstration by members of the Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ).

According to his colleague, Costa Nkomo, they were filming the demonstrations when the police approached Munhende. Nkomo said they still bundled Munhende into their vehicle despite the fact that he had shown them his accreditation card.
