MDCs deputy organising secretary arrested

The MDC deputy Organising Secretary, Senator Morgen Komichi was yesterday arrested at Lupane Police Station in Matabeleland North province on frivolous charges of communicating falsehoods. Senator Komichi had gone to Lupane after he had been told to report at Lupane Police station last week.

Human rights lawyer, Alec Muchadehama who is representing Senator Komichi said the senator was still detained at Lupane Police Station and is expected to appear in court today. Senator Komichi is being charged with contravening Section 31A III of the Criminal Law (Cordification) and Reform Act when he addressed a rally at Negasha Stadium in Lupane in February this year.

The police are accusing Senator Komichi of communicating falsehoods and undermining the police by accusing the provincial police led by Edmore Veterai of confiscating three MDC vehicles in 2008.

In the run up to the sham June 27 2008 presidential run-off elections, Lupane Police impounded President Morgan Tsvangirais campaign vehicle and two others belonging to the Matabeleland North province and the Youth Assembly. The three vehicles are still at Lupane police station.
