AN MDC-Alliance official from Matabeleland South has been arrested after he bulldozed his way into the West Nicholson Police Station while drunk.
Causemore Siziba (42) who is the secretary for information for Gwanda Central Constituency was not asked to plead when he appeared before Gwanda magistrate, Miss Lerato Nyathi facing a charge of disorderly conduct in a public place. He was remanded out of custody on his own cognisance to 1 September. Prosecuting, Miss Ethel Mahachi said Siziba who is employed at Jessie Mine in West Nicholson committed the offence on 31 July.
“On 31 July at around 2pm, the accused person went to West Nicholson Police Station in Gwanda while drunk where he was attended to by Constable Moyo who was manning the gate. Constable Moyo asked how he could assist Siziba who refused to entertain Const Moyo and forced his way into the police station while demanding to talk to members of the police intelligence. Constable Moyo then alerted his workmates who escorted the accused person to the West Nicholson Police intelligence office,” she said.
