Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association secretary for information and publicity Mr Douglas Mahiya has been arrested. Sources close to the matter said Mr Mahiya was picked by the police yesterday afternoon. Details relating to the charges he is facing were still sketchy.
“Yes, he was picked by the police but I do not have much detail as yet,” said the source. Mr Mahiya presided over a war veterans meeting that denounced President Mugabe last Thursday.
At the meeting, other participants took turns to denounce the President. Some of the participants who were vocal and blunt in attacking President Mugabe include Mr Francis Nhando and Mr Victor Matemadanda.
In his contribution at the meeting, Mr Nhando said no serious investor could commit his or her money in a country with a 92-year-old leader.
