20 Cops Waylay & Detain Thokozani Khupe & Convoy At Magunje Growth Point

 

Magunje Police Station on Sunday detained and quizzed MDC-T vice-president Thokozani Khupe over a party meeting she had addressed earlier on at Murereshi and Chiedza townships in Hurungwe West.

About 20 police officers including plain clothes officers waylaid Khupe as she arrived at Magunje Growth Point and ordered her convoy to drive into the police station for interrogation.

She was later released without charge.

MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu confirmed the matter and accused police of operating like an extension of the ruling Zanu PF party.

“Yes, for the record I can confirm that our vice-president Khupe was briefly detained at Magunje Police Station but we warn the police not to be used by Zanu PF because according to law as a political party we are exempted from seeking police clearance for our party meetings…This was not a rally neither was it a public meeting,” said Gutu.
