Man arrested for undermining the authority of the President after saying Mugabe is too old
MDC-T member Themba Nyoni was arrested on Saturday for undermining the authority of the president. Nyoni was arrested after saying President Robert Mugabe is “too old and must go and rest” while engaged in a conversation with Zanu PF member Abednhico Ncube, who is also the Matabeleland South provincial affairs minister. Ncube immediately ordered a policeman to arrest Nyoni for his statement.
Nyoni was detained for 6 hours at Gwanda Police Station after Ncube failed to give a statement to the police.
He (Ncube) went to say Tsvangirai is as good as dead and I replied by saying even Mugabe is now too old and must go and rest.
….Police then called Ncube to come and give a statement but he alleged to be in Harare despite having caused my arrest a few minutes back.
