MDC MP for Kuwadzana East Charlton Hwende has written to the Namibian police seeking protection against rendition to Zimbabwe. Hwende is on the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) wanted list on allegations of public violence.
Hwende had gone to Namibia to visit relatives when he was notified that state security agencies were after him. He now fears that the dreaded Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) is hot on his trails.
A letter written by Hwende’s lawyer to the Inspector-General of Namibian Police Sebastian Ndeitunga claims that the CIO has travelled to Namibia to abduct Hwende and bring him back to Zimbabwe. The attorney wrote:
In the course of January 2019, our client was informed, through reliable sources, that members of the Zimbabwean intelligence agency, namely the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO), travelled to Namibia to abduct and rendition him (Hwende) to Zimbabwe where he is apparently wanted for treason, incitement to commit public violence and other charges.
According to the information, the members of the CIO already arrived in Namibia on or before 28 January 2019.
Hwende revealed to NewZimbabwe.com that he had not fled to Namibia but had visited the country. He was set to return to Zimbabwe early this month.
