By A Correspondent -Home Affairs Minister, and Zanu PF Mashonaland Central provincial chairman, Kazembe Kazembe has reportedly set police details on aspiring party provincial chairperson James Makamba.
Makamba is challenging Kazembe for the influential party position in Mashonaland Central in the impending Provincial Coordinating Committee elections.
Both Makamba and Kazembe could neither confirm nor deny the allegations.
Sources close to the incident alleged that Makamba was arrested at his rural home in Mount Darwin after his family and friends had gathered to welcome him.
“Police came and arrested Makamba accusing him of violating covid- 19 regulations but they were pleading with him that they were sent by Kazembe on political grounds since he showed interest in contesting him in the looming provincial elections, ” said the source.
Kazembe did not respond to questions sent to him by this Bulawayo24, while Makamba refused to comment on the issue.
Makamba’s alleged arrest has raised eyebrows within the Zanu PF camp in the province with locals arguing that Kazembe was ever mobilising huge crowds exceeding 50 people which are allowed under the Covid-19 set regulations.
“It is astonishing to note that Kazembe is using security agencies for political power in the name of violating covid 19 regulations yet he chairs a PCC with more than 100 people,” said Givemore Chatyoka.
