Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Zimbabwean police detained a journalist at the Standard newspaper in the second-largest city, Bulawayo, said Alpha Media Holdings, the newspaper’s owner.

Nqobani Ndhlovu is being questioned about a story published by the Sunday newspaper alleging that police had scrapped entrance examinations for potential recruits, Trevor Ncube, chief executive officer at Alpha Media, said today by phone from Yaounde, Cameroon, where he is attending a conference.

Police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena, speaking from Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, said he was not aware of any arrest.
