Zimlive reports that Zanu-PF youth leader, Godwin Gomwe, who was accused of murder in the skirmishes of the protests this month has been freed. Gomwe was apparently released following an order from Acting President Constantino Chiwenga. Gomwe was arrested over the shooting deaths of two people.
Said sources to Zimlive:
“Gomwe was arrested by Budiriro police and later taken to the Law and Order section at Harare Central. He was charged for shooting two people, but we were later made to understand Chiwenga had secured his release. The final ignominy for the police was having to first apologise, and then escort him to his home as per orders.
A day after his release, on Thursday, they were terrorising residents of Highfield. He drives around in a Ford Everest, while the rest of the gang has Ford Rangers. We want to believe he commands this terror group.”
