Journalists Harassed By Tsvangirai's Security Guards

The Zimbabwe Independent SEVERAL journalists were on Wednesday barred by MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai’s security guards from entering his Strathaven home where the prime minister-designate was scheduled to hold a press conference.
The journalists were blocked from attending the conference after failing to produce accreditation cards from the Media and Information Commission (MIC).
The MDC is on record as criticising the creation of the MIC under the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the licensing of journalists by the commission.
The press conference was later deferred to yesterday.
Tsvangirai’s guards claimed that there were instructions from the “top” not to allow in journalists without the MIC accreditation cards.
