MDC Trio, Joana Mamombe, Chimbiri and Netsai Arrested

Legislator for Movement for Democratic Change (MDC Alliance), Joana Mamombe party activist Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai have been arrested.

According to Job Sikhala, the trio was arrested for their routine reporting conditions.

The police arrested the three for addressing the press at the Court on the 25th of February 2021 in solidarity with Makomborero Haruzivishe who is accused of failing to appear in court in 2020 at a time when he had been in contact with someone who had tested positive to coronavirus.

The MDC trio was granted bail earlier this month by High Court Judge Webster Chinamhora.

The trio had been arrested for shouting obscenities at a group of police officers on 1 February 2021.
