By Paul Nyathi| Former Mines and Mining Development Minister Walter Chidhakwa was arrested on Monday and spent the night at Harare Central Police cells, ZimEye.com can reveal.
Sources indicated that the former Minister who is a close relative to former President Robert Mugabe was arrested for defying a court order which was granted against him when he was still the Minister.
