Three MDC-Alliance members are currently detained at Mutare Central police station without a charge, three hours after they have been taken in.
The three, Sam Chabuka, Godwin Sithole and Walter Mutwayo are currently being held at the Charge office after being picked by police from Mutare Main Camp where they had gone in response to an alert that members of the police force were voting, the Ross camp way.
Sam Chabuka is the MDC Alliance local government candidate for Ward 12 where the Police station falls under.
The MDC-Alliance Mutare Central MP, Hon Innocent Gonese, is at Mutare Central Police station where the three are held to establish the charges and reasons for their arrest.
Sadly, the arrests cast an even deeper aspersions to the credibility, fairness and even freeness of the electoral process.
We will keep you posted on any developments around this issue.
