news24 | Chris Maroleng booted out of Zimbabwe, Daily Maverick photographer's accreditation denied, 18 Aug "free press"
Former SABC chief operating officer Chris Maroleng has spoken of his dismay after he and his team were deported from Zimbabwe ahead of Wednesday's general election.

Maroleng, who now works for Good Governance Africa, said he and three colleagues were in the country to carry out "vital field research on election conditions and challenges in Zimbabwe".
Maroleng took to social media to post about their "disturbing" experience with the country's immigration officials: "My colleagues and I have been abruptly deported by the Zimbabwean government from Harare today (Thursday) at [16:15]. Our stay, a mere two days long since our arrival on Tuesday, has been cut short in a manner that highlights the grave implications of bad governance.
On Thursday, after Maroleng's deportation, the Zimbabwe information ministry's permanent secretary, Ndabaningi Mangwana wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, that the state noted that people have had an interest in visiting the country ahead of the elections. However, he said they need to follow the right processes.

"If you are an election observer, say so, we accredit such. If you are a journalist say so, we accredit such. If you make misrepresentations to the immigration officer, you may find yourself on the next plane home.
