Police take aim at Chamisa and Biti in search of weapons

ZIMBABWEAN authorities have obtained a search warrant authorising them to search for grenades, stones, unlicensed firearms, ammunition, computers, computer accessories and some subversive material allegedly possessed by opposition MDC Alliance leaders.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) led by Superintendent Majecha obtained a search warrant issued by a Harare Magistrate on Wednesday 01 August 2018 authoring the law enforcement agents to enter Harvest House, the MDC Alliance headquarters in Harare and search and seize the alleged weapons.

ZRP alleged that the weapons belong to or under the control of MDC Alliance leaders and members namely Nelson Chamisa, Tendai Biti, Happymore Chidziva, Denford Ngadziore, Stewart Mukoyi, pro-democracy campaigner Makomborero Haruzivishe and National Patriotic Front leaders Shadreck Mashayamombe and Jim Kunaka.

ZRP charged that it is concerned that the weapons are intended to be used in the commission of an offence in contravention of section 43(2) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23 which prohibits possession of dangerous weapons and public violence as defined in section 36 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23.
