Zimbabwe Republic Police have said that investigations in the case of the acting president of Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, Dr Peter Magombeyi are now in full swing.
Magombeyi was found on Thursday night after missing since Saturday 14 September.
The National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi dismissed allegations that Magombeyi was now in police custody as earlier suggested. He said:
The ZRP wishes to advise members of the public that investigations in Dr Peter Gabriel Magombeyi’s case are in full swing. He is currently admitted at a local hospital for observation by a medical team.
He has been examined by his own medical team and government medical officers. He is safe and has not been arrested at all as claimed in some sections of the media. Dr Magombeyi will be interviewed by the police once he is cleared by his medical team.
We are waiting to talk to him once he has been discharged. As of now he said he is physically fit but we are also waiting for the results from the examination that was conducted by the doctors.
Magombeyi’s disappearance sparked controversy with some alleging that he stage-managed his disappearance whilst some are saying the government kidnapped him.
The doctor is the only one who can set the record straight but has so far said that he does not remember anything that transpired whilst he was missing.
Authorities also said that he was refusing to talk to them.
