The Zimbabwe Republic Police have arrested MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora in what analysts said was a desperate attempt to cover up the brutal torture of party official Job Sikhala on Saturday.
Mwonzora is the lead counsel in the ongoing case in which Central Intelligence Organisation operatives tortured Sikhala.
Police spokesperson, Charity Charamba claimed Mwonzora was locked up in connection with the alleged disappearance of $15 000 in trust funds from his private law firm.
However, the arrest on a Saturday, when the courts were closed, was a tactic used by Robert Mugabe’s regime and was aimed at preventing Mwonzora from applying for bail immediately, observers said.
