Two people have been arrested and dragged before the courts facing charges of impersonation and trespassing after attempting to get into President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s official residency.
NewsDay reports that Nigel Rutsito was arrested Saturday outside the State House after attempting to get into the place claiming that he is a member of the spy network, the Central Intelligence Organization.
His alleged accomplice, Dylan Kanyungwe, allegedly demanded to meet with Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
Rutsito was allegedly denied entry into President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s residence after he failed to produce a state security identity document and Kanyugwe turned violent when he was told that Chiwenga did not live at the State House.
The Harare duo’s motives are still unknown.
Local magistrate, Barbara Mateko, granted the two free bail.
