Newly elected Harare deputy mayor Kudzai Kadzombe has been arrested, hardly a week after assuming office, on a charge of assaulting a Zanu PF member on election day. Kadzombe landed the council seat on a CCC ticket.
The party’s deputy spokesperson Gift Siziba, Kadzombe confirmed the arrest, but national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was unaware of the incident.
“The newly elected Harare City Deputy Mayor Kudzai Kadzombe has been arrested by Malborough Police Station (officers). She is being charged with assaulting a ZANU PF member in Marlborough during the recent harmonized elections. She will appear at Harare Rotten Row Magistrate Court tomorrow Friday 8.15 am,” Siziba posted on his X (formerly Twitter) handle.
Ironically, Siziba, also a Member of Parliament for Pelandaba Tshabalala, was briefly detained on Wednesday, released, and later summoned to appear in court tomorrow on a charge of inciting violence at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Sunday. for allegedly inciting violence, released, he was summoned to court on Friday.
The CCC has claimed that the series of arrests that has seen over 10 of its members taken into custody this week, is a ploy by the ruling Zanu PF to reduce the opposition party’s representation in Parliament and local authorities.
