President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday morning met members of the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum over the alleged abduction and torture of three female members of the opposition MDC Alliance.
The POLAD team was being headed by Professor Lovemore Madhuku who is the forum’s Chairperson on Governance and Legislative Agenda.
Speaking to ZBC News after the meeting, Madhuku said:

We came to see the President on a very crucial issue relating to the recent abductions, as POLAD we feel very strongly that the abductions must be investigated, we want to get to the bottom of the matter and so we were advising the President that is is important for the nation to ensure that these things are properly investigated through an independent process so that the whole world knows the truth, it is important that we don’t continue to say abductions or no abductions, there must be clarity now on what exactly is happening.
The trio, Joannah Mamombe, Netsai Marova and Cecilia Chimbiri were arrested at a flash hunger protest in Warren Park, Harare on 13 May.
They were allegedly abducted from police custody and were maltreated all night before being dumped in Bindura, about 87km from Harare.
