Chin'ono was released on bail in September after spending 45 days in prison on charges of inciting violence.

Reports suggest the arrest relates to a breach of his bail conditions relating to social media use.

Justice Tawanda Chitapi -- who granted him bail a month ago -- ordered him to report to the Zimbabwe Republic Police twice a week and not to post messages on social media until the finalisation of his matter as part of his bail conditions.
