Twimbos have unearthed a witness in the ZBC footage that circulated on Social Media showing the arrest of the MDC Alliance Trio of Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marowa and Cecilia Chepiri who were arrested as they were going to report to the police as part of their bail conditions.
The man who gave an eye witness account that the soldiers did not assault any of the ladies was identified by Twimbos as Lonias Rozvi who is alleged to be a member of ZANU Infomation Department which raised the question if the national broadcaster paid the witnesses to say the MDC Trio was not assaulted by law enforcement agents.
Here is the video and Rozvi giving his eyewitness account.
Twimbos who responded to Nick Mangwana’s tweets about the incident said:
Lol Lonias Rozvi , a member of Zanu infor dept ndoWitness manje. Such desperation

Where did these people who are posing as witnesses come from? The CBD was a no go area. But these witnesses of yours seem so chilled and comfortable where they are. An ordinary citizen wouldn’t have had a privilege to be standing a few meters from these security forces
An eyewitness account does not give reasons. An eyewitness cannot speak to intention,they can only recall the event. How do they know who was in the car, where they were from & that there was no media presence? Amateurish skits peddled by ZBC News
