MDC Alliance MP for Mutasa South, Regai Tsunga was on Tuesday arrested by police in Palmerstone, Mutare while distributing free maize meal to vulnerable members in the constituency whose plight has been worsened by the 5-week lockdown.
Tsunga, who was taken to Mutare Central Police station where he paid a $500 fine for contravening Statutory Instrument 83 of 2020 which prohibits unnecessary movement during the national lockdown, confirmed his arrest to NewZimbabwe.com. He said;
It’s true that police picked me up at Palmerstone while I was implementing a constituency-based COVID-19 intervention activity centred on food security and nutrition.Feedback

Panganayi said Manicaland Minister of State Ellen Gwaradzimba was never arrested recently after she distributed rice in Sakubva high density.
