Amos Chibaya, the MDC-T MP for Mkoba in Gweru and Youth Assembly Midlands
South provincial treasurer, Livingstone Chiminya, were both locked up in
police cells on Sunday facing charges of public violence.
The two are detained at Gweru central police station.

Wonder Tsuro, the Midlands South provincial spokeman told SW Radio Africa on
Monday that they were surprised to hear news of Chibaya’s arrest.

‘We were with the MP in Mberengwa for a rally on Saturday. On our way back
to Gweru in the evening, I understand he stopped at Guinea Fowl business
centre for some refreshments, when he was confronted by some ZANU PF youths
members.

‘He is a well known figure in the province, and his presence at the shopping
centre attracted the attention of these youths who tried to attack him. In
the commotion, we are told they smashed his car windscreen but he was able
to drive off safely from the scene,’ Tsuro said.

But on Sunday Chibaya, accompanied by Chiminya, went to the police to make a
report but were instead detained and charged with causing public violence.

‘The two are still detained and our lawyers are making frantic efforts to
have them freed. This is how the system works in Zimbabwe, the victim of a
crime is the one who ends up locked inside the cells,’ Tsuro added.
