Police seize Tsvangirai’s car

Police have impounded a South African registered BMW X5 that MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai was using to tour rural Matabeleland North province, a lawyer has said.

On Wednesday, police arrested Tsvangirai, his deputy Thokozani Khupe and national Chairman Lovemore Moyo as they visited Lupane district to mobilise support ahead of a second round presidential election.

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party leaders were held for nine hours before they were released without charge.

The police are saying the driver who was driving the car was not authorised to do so in terms of the Customs and Excise Act. They are demanding that the owner either comes to Lupane or he sends a written affidavit explaining how the vehicle was temporarily imported into Zimbabwe, said lawyer Jacob Sibanda.

But MDC spokesperson Nelson Chamisa accused the police of trying to derail Tsvangirai’s campaign and vowed that the MDC leader would not be deterred in his bid to win the June 27 second round presidential election. – ZimOnline
