MDC Chief of Staff remanded in custody

Abisha Nyanguwo the MDC Chief of Staff has been remanded in custody in Gweru after the magistrate ruled that he will make a ruling on his bail application tomorrow. Nyanguwo is facing charges of malicious damage to property. The State is accusing him of bombing Zanu PF offices in Gweru last December.

He was arrested earlier this week and has been detained at Gweru Central Police Station.

Today the magistrate postponed the initial remand hearing as the State files did not include any witnesses. It was only in the afternoon when one Archford Tambare was included as the State witness. The State is claiming that Tambare, a police officer from Zhombe district witnessed Nyanguwo ferrying explosives from Mvuma which he used to blow up the Zanu PF Gweru offices.

On 22 March 2012 heavily armed police officers raided Nyanguwo’s residence in Harare, claiming to search for weapons of war and mass destruction before they impounded his Isuzu double cab truck alleging that it was used in the bombing.

early this year, police in Gweru arrested three MDC members, Shepherd Marange, Douglas Tsuro and Silas Mutendeudzwa on charges of bombing the same Zanu PF offices but they were released later.
