New twist to the arrest of MDC Alliance activists. National police spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed that the trio was arrested for holding an unsanctioned demonstration in Warren Park suburb.

There has been a fresh twist in the arrest/enforced disappearance of MDC secretary for policy and Harare West legislator Joanna Mamombe, youth assembly vice-chairperson Cecilia Chimbiri and deputy organising secretary Netsai Marowa by police in Harare on Wednesday.

However, on Thursday, MDC Alliance Secretary for Welfare Maureen Kademaunga visited Harare Central Police with their lawyers but the Officer In Charge insisted that they never arrested the trio.

Speaking to the Daily News on Wednesday, Ass Comm. Nyathi promised to give more details following the arrest of the trio. He said: There was an unsanctioned demonstration that took place in Warren Park. Police are still conducting some investigations over the matter.

Yes, there are some people who have been picked up over the demo, but we will give finer details later. People should desist from engaging in illegal activities such as unsanctioned demonstrations, especially this time when the nation is fighting the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the British Embassy in Harare has urged Zimbabwean authorities to locate the missing activists and for the security services to act in line with the national Constitution.
