Hopewell Chin'ono: Zimbabwe journalist's lawyer says arrest 'expected'

The whistleblower recently exposed alleged corruption in the Zimbabwean government
There is widespread international concern for the welfare of a Zimbabwean journalist who's been arrested in the capital, Harare. Hopewell Chin'ono recently exposed alleged high-level corruption in the Zimbabwean government. Police broke into his home and took him without explanation. His lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa says she believes the allegations against him have been kept purposely vague:

"They are just so wide as to be almost meaningless. We asked for specifics about which tweet, or when it was made... and they've refused to give us any of those."
