  • Former Nation Journalist Muchoki Mumo

There were concerns after it emerged that South African journalist Angela Quintal, Africa programme coordinator for press freedom group the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), and her Kenyan colleague Muthoki Mumo had been detained by authorities on Wednesday evening without explanation.

In the meantime, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation is trying to establish what has happened.

CPJ said that Quintal, a former editor of South Africa's Mail & Guardian newspaper, and Mumo were legally in Tanzania "on a reporting mission" when they were detained.

"It is unclear whether the Tanzanian authorities have taken Quintal's phone".

This means that they could still be under detention, but this has not been confirmed.

South Africa's High Commissioner Thami Mseleku is meeting with the pair to discuss the details of their arrest. "Quintal and Mumo were then escorted from the hotel and. taken to an unknown location". "But you know Angela - she is fine, and full of jokes", said Mabaya.

"While they were detained, a false tweet saying they had been released was sent from Quintal's personal Twitter account and repeated attempts were made to access Quintal's email".

Mabaya said she was unable to locate it and her Twitter and Facebook profiles remain deactivated.

The department announced on Thursday that Quintal and Mumo were released following their detention on Wednesday. She is also a former national office bearer of the South African National Editors' Forum (Sanef).

Quintal tweeted before 1am on Tuesday morning that she and her colleague had been released. They were eventually released by the authorities to their hotel in Dar es Salaam but their passports were withheld.

"Angela Quintal and Muthoki Mumo travelled to Tanzania to understand the challenges facing the Tanzanian press and to inform the global public", the CPJ boss said.

Press freedom has come under attack in Tanzania under the administration of President John Magufuli. "One paper made a decision to suspend publication itself after publishing a story it feared might irritate officials.There have also been more violent incidences of harassment".
