Hundreds of doctors protested after Peter Magombeyi went missing

A Zimbabwean union leader who was thought to have been abducted is alive and well, reports say.

Peter Magombeyi had organised a series of strikes over poor pay and working conditions in recent weeks.

On Saturday, he sent a message alleging he had been kidnapped, which resulted in hundreds of doctors marching through the capital Harare.

But a doctor told the BBC that he had been left near the capital and is fine but disorientated.

“I remember being in a basement of some sort, being electrocuted,” Dr Magombeyi told VOA, recalling what happened during his ordeal.

Zimbabwean authorities have suggested the abduction was staged.
