Kademaunga however said the trio were in very bad shape and they told horrendous tales of torture and abuse.

“Mamombe and Marova are having difficulty in walking while Chimbiri is complaining of severe head pains, ” said MDC spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka in a statement.

He said they are currently being assisted to check into a medical facility in the presence of lawyers and the police.

Added Tamborinyoka….

“After receiving a distress phone call from the dumped cadres who had been accommodated by a sympathetic villager in Muchapondwa, a group of MDC officials that included Secretary for Welfare Maureen Kademaunga and deputy organisinf secretary Happymore Chidziva immediately alerted lawyers and the police and drove to the area in Bindura South where they found the three cadres in very bad shape.”

Kademaunga revealed that the trio confrmed being arrested and taken to Harare Central Police station before they were taken in a black toyota wish and being covered by sacks so that they could not see where they were going.

Said Kademaunga:

“We have more than 10 police details hovering around the medical facility where we have taken them and we are worried because the same people that arrested them handed them over to those that tortured them and yet they claimed that they did not know where they are. This is very worrying because the girls want nothing to do with the police.”
