Transform Zimbabwe (TZ) president Jacob Ngarivhume said he was briefly arrested by police on Saturday during a cleanup campaign in Mbare.
In a social media post, the 31 July 2020 anti-corruption protest organiser claimed police officers from Matapi Police Station held the two trucks that were to be used for clean-up. The officers later allowed the programme to go ahead. Said Nagrivhume:
Got arrested at Matapi Police for the clean-up. However, I refused to go to the station. Then they telling me that we can go ahead with the cleanup but they holding the two tippers we hired. We’re left with only the front-end loader. What a bizarre nation we leave in.
… This clean-up was done with a budget of less than US$1000, and fantastic people volunteering their time. As a people, we have a great responsibility on our shoulders. Transformation will only happen when people lead.
