THE MDC Alliance co-vice presidents, Tendai Biti, Karenyi Kore, and five other senior party officials arrested outside Harvest House on Friday are expected to appear in court today, Saturday “for violating lockdown restrictions.”

The seven officials were arrested outside MDC headquarters, Harvest House, now known as the Morgan Richard Tsvangirai House after they tried to gain entry into the party offices that were captured by rival MDC-T on Thursday night with the help of the police.

The leaders addressed a press conference before starting to sing revolutionary songs leading to their arrest.

They were detained overnight at the Harare Central Police Station.

Other party officials arrested are; Gladys Hlatshwayo, secretary for international relations and her deputy, Lovemore Chinoputsa, Manicaland provincial chair, David Chimhini, deputy youth assembly spokesperson, Womberayi Nhende, and Vongai Tome.

Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrests and said the seven were in breach of the Covid-19 regulations and are set to appear in court on Saturday.
