A Mercedes Benz believed to be owned by Harare West legislator, Joannah Mamombe which she was driving when she was arrested last week was reportedly found parked at Harare Central Police Station (HCPS).
NewsDay reports that the vehicle, which was registered in the name of a Chisipite man, was on Sunday parked at the HCPS.
Mamombe’s husband, Mfundo Mlilo, confirmed that the vehicle was the one Mamombe was driving on Wednesday last week and has since that day been parked at Harare Central Police Station. He said:
They were arrested at the police roadblock. Police officers got into their car and ordered them to drive to the police station. At the police station, they were ordered into another car, leaving their car parked there. The keys got lost during the abduction and torture.
This comes after national police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi has issued contradicting statements on the matter.
He initially claimed that the trio, Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova, had been arrested and was in police custody. Nyathi later denied ever saying those remarks.
The opposition MDC is of the conviction that the three were abducted and tortured by state security agents. The ruling ZANU PF claims the abductions were stage-managed.
