Own Correspondent|Government will soon be arresting abducted, tortured and dumped MDC Alliance MP, Joanna Mamombe who are currently in hospital.

Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe revealed in a statement that Police will pounce on Mamombe and some party activists for allegedly staging an illegal demonstration and violating lockdown regulations.

Mamombe and party youth leaders, Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova were last Wednesday abducted and subjected to horrendous torture by suspected state security agents who accused them of plotting to overthrow President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The three had earlier been involved in an anti-government protest over lockdown food distributions.

At a media briefing in Harare on Sunday, Kazembe Kazembe said police were still going to press charges against the three for organising a demonstration when the country had declared a national lockdown against the spread of coronavirus.

“The trio’s demonstration was illegal because for one to stage a demonstration, one should have a police clearance.

“So, in that respect, it was illegal and they also violated the lockdown regulations. So, it was illegal and there was no social distancing.

“So, it will be dealt with at an appropriate time. For now, we are dealing with the alleged abduction,” Kazembe said.
