<vote /> Mutare businessman Tendai Blessing Mangwiro has approached the High Court seeking to have Home Affairs minister Ignatius Chombo arrested. Mangwiro wants Chombo to be arrested on contempt of court charges after defying a 14-day High Court ultimatum compelling him to reimburse his seized $78 900 cash.

Mangwiro’s money was seized by police sometime in 2012 as an exhibit, but last month, Chombo was personally given an ultimatum and ordered to ensure Mangwiro was paid back. Justice November Mtshiya ruled in Mangwiro’s favour and ordered the Home Affairs Minister to ensure the order was immediately complied with.

For failing to comply with the court order in time, the court also demanded that the Ministry of Home Affairs pay the costs of the lawsuit, which, according to Mangwiro’s lawyers, had reached to $3 000.
