MDC wants BMW back

The deputy chairman of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC, Senator Morgan Komichi, has called on the police to return the party's BMW X5 and two other vehicles impounded at the height of campaigning in 2008.

Komichi, who was facing charges of accusing the commander of Matabeleland North provincial police of abusing three MDC vehicles, was removed from remand on September 26. The State was accusing the Senator of communicating falsehoods and undermining the police by accusing them of confiscating three MDC vehicles in 2008 from Tsvangirai. Komichi made the remarks at an MDC rally at Negasha in Lupane, Matebeleland North province.

In the run-up to the sham June 2008 presidential run-off elections, the police impounded Tsvangirai’s armoured BMW X5 campaign vehicle and two others belonging to the Matabeleland North province and the Youth Assembly.

The BMW X5, which was part of Tsvangirai’s security motorcade, was impounded by police and members of the Central intelligence Organisation on June 6, 2008.

"We have been cleared and we hope the police return our cars," Komichi said.
