Former Local Government Minister Arrested For “Insulting” First Lady

Former Local Government minister and Zanu-PF MP for Headlands Christopher Chingosho was arrested yesterday for allegedly calling first lady Auxillia Mnangagwa a prostitute for not inviting him to a function held in his constituency.

Last night, The Standard visited Rusape Police Station and was informed by police details that Chingosho was being questioned following the incident.

Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed Chingosho’s arrest but could not give details, saying police were still investigating the case. Nyathi said:

I can confirm that a report has been made against the MP, but we are still investigating the nature of the report.

As of now, I cannot confirm whether it is an arrest or what.

All I can say is we are still investigating the nature of the report.

Zanu-PF sources told The Standard that Chingosho was arrested after he reacted angrily to the alleged snub by the first lady. Said a senior Zanu-PF official in Rusape:

He arrived at the function and complained about the failure of the first lady to invite him.

He said the first lady was a whore because he did not invite him.

Some party members who attended the event immediately reported him to the police, leading to his arrest.

Several Zanu-PF officials from Manicaland confirmed the development, but refused to be named saying the “matter was too sensitive.”

Many people have since the days of the late former President Robert Mugabe been arrested for “insulting” the first family, especially the president.
