Nyoni arrested in SA

Zanu (PF) chairperson for Johannesburg, Ndaba Nyoni, was arrested for common assault after gate crashing a press conference and attacking one of the guests, Rodrick Magaisa.

Johannesburg Central Police spokesperson John Maluleke confirmed that a file had been opened under case number 96/2011 against Nyoni. Dewa Mavhinga, Regional Information and Advocacy Coordinator for Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition, South Africa, lambasted Nyoni for trying to “shift the focus into mini-affairs whereas the entire world is looking at the SADC Summit”.

“This clearly was an attempt by Zanu (PF) to divert attention from its failings and from important SADC business of crafting a clear roadmap for Zimbabwe. Ndaba Nyoni was not invited to the Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition press conference, but demanded entry and tried to cause confusion. We rejected totally any attempts by the party to smear civic groups or members of the MDC who attended the press conference by blaming them for Zanu (PF) violence exported from Zimbabwe,” said Mavhinga. – Mkhululi Chimoio
