GOVERNMENT has dispatched a security team to keep allegedly abducted doctor Peter Magombeyi under a 24-hour-surveillance in South Africa where he is receiving treatment, the Zim Morning Post can reveal.
Sources told this publication that government has dispatched four highly ranked police officers from the ZRP, two officers from the Central Intelligence Organisation and two others from the Military Intelligence Department to keep tracking Magombeyi’s activities as he receives treatment in South Africa.
This comes amid reports that government still insists that Magombeyi was never abducted when he went missing on September 14.
Magombeyi was found dumped in Nyabira after missing for four days.
“The state is not buying into the abduction story as well as the torture reports,” said the source.
“This explains the heavy security presence at Avenues Clinic were he was admitted for some days.
“The state has also dispatched an 8-member team to South Africa to keep him under surveillance,” the source said.
Before his departure the media practitioners had to wait outside Avenues Clinic but Magombeyi sneaked out via the backdoor. The media practitioners had to be told after spending a couple of hours waiting that Magombeyi was already at the airport.
