Two councilors of the MDC Alliance in Marondera have been arrested after they allegedly broke into the party’s provincial offices and took the property to an unknown location.
The duo, Charles Ngwena from ward 4, and Saizi Vilela of ward 11 are facing charges of unlawful entry.
The alleged break-in happened after MDC-T reinstated Secretary General, Douglas Mwonzora had appointed Wellington Makonese as the acting Provincial Administrator.
The arrest was confirmed by MDC Alliance provincial spokesperson and Marondera mayor Chengetai Murowa.
Without divulging much detail, Murowa the councilors have since been released and are expected to appear in court this week. Murowa added:
We will be notified on the day to appear in court, they will call us.
Reports suggest that Ngwena and Vilela together with some party members loyal to MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa allegedly raided the party premises in Morningside and removed 47 chairs, two computers, and a printer, among other things.
They also changed the locks to bar Makonese and other rival faction members from gaining access.
The divisions in the MDC have become more apparent following the Supreme Court ruling on the party’s leadership crisis that reinstated Thokozani Khupe as its legitimate leader.
