Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has reacted angrily to the arrest and detention of Nelson Chamisa's lawyer advocate Thabani Mpofu.
"Whilst I'm not saying anyone's above the law, does this matter really require Thabani Mpofu @ adv_fulcrum being detained? This smacks more of persecution than prosecution. A matter that allegedly occurred in Nov 2019 suddenly has such importance today?" Mliswa fumed via Twitter.
Advocate Thabani Mpofu has been detained overnight at the Rhodesville Police station in Harare after being charged with a crime of perjury.
He was expected to appear in court on Tuesday.
