Zimbabwean journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono has posted a picture of Crispen Makedenge, the former head of the Law and Order section, which suggests the man might be having a difficult time.
Hopewell added the caption below:
The 3 times I have been arrested, Mnangagwa’s regime has used Law & Order section. This man is called Crispen Makedenge. He used to head the Law & Order section, torturing opposition politicians like @JobSikhala1, and he even intimidated me. See him today! Brokenness personified
Some rebuked Hopewell, saying he was now being worse off than those who abused him. One Mai Izwi posted:

Others said the picture must serve as a warning to others that the ruling ZANU PF uses people and dumps them when it is done with them.
