ZANU PF Bigwig Threatens Police Over Arrest Of Council Officials

A member of ZANU PF’s Central Committee, John Nhambura is alleged to have threatened Mvurwi police over the arrest of three Mvurwi town council officials who are facing fraud charges.

The three officials, Sheri Nyakudya Town Secretary, Letwin Watambwa housing and community services officer together with Simbarashe Kambare housing clerk.

It is alleged that Nhamburo who reportedly owns several stands in Mazowe, demanded the trio’s release saying their arrest will have an adverse impact on the image of the party.

Bulawayo24 reports that Nhamburo sent a high-powered delegation to Mvurwi police station on Friday with the mandate to influence the release of the trio. Speaking to Bulawayo24, an anonymous junior police officer said:

Nhamburo first called our bosses saying he wanted the release of council officials chief among them Sheri Nyakudya as her arrest will put the image of party in disrepute.
Hours latter the delegation arrived on the station fuming and demanding the release of the trio but fortunately our bosses stood their ground and dragged the trio to court.
ZANU PF’s Mazowe  District Coordinating Committee (DCC) leadership confirmed receipt of the report adding that they had already warned Nhamburo against issuing any threat to the police as that will tarnish the image of the party.
The trio was allegedly swindling Mvurwi residents of their money. The three council officials are appearing at Guruve magistrates courts this Monday for bail ruling.
