ZINASU President Arrested For Protesting At Impala Car Rental Offices

ZiMetro News has established that the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has arrested and detained Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) president Takudzwa Ngadziore.

Ngadziore is being held at Harare Central Police Station for ostensibly protesting at Impala Car Rental offices demanding answers concerning the company’s alleged role in the use of its vehicles in the abduction of Tawanda Muchehiwa.

Muchehiwa, a journalism student, was abducted, disappeared, and tortured by some unidentified individuals in Bulawayo in the month of July this year. The unscrupulous kidnappers then went on to interrogate him, demanding him to disclose the whereabouts of his relative, freelance journalist Mduduzi Mathuthu who is also the editor of ZimLive.com.

Muchehiwa was abducted a few weeks back by suspected state agents who used a vehicle that had been rented from Impala Car Rental.

The white ford ranger (Registration no. AES 2433) was captured by a CCTV camera outside a hardware shop in Bulawayo where Muchehiwa was kidnapped.

Impala promised to cooperate with the investigation, which would lead to the arrest of the alleged abductors.

In an interview with SABC News, CEO of Impala Car Rental in Zimbabwe, Thompson Dondo refused to give out the name of the customer in question.

He said the car is not registered in Impala Car Rental’s name but to an individual.

In a bid to pile pressure on Impala Car Rental on Tuesday, scores of student activists besieged its business premises protesting against the company’s alleged complicity in the abduction of Muchehiwa.

Speaking to NewZimbabwe on Tuesday, Zimbabwe National Students Union president Takudzwa Ngadziore asserted Impala Car Rental had connived with Muchehiwa’s abductors.

He said:

Impala is responsible for Tawanda’s abduction. We need answers from them because they provided the vehicle that was used to abduct Tawanda.

We believe that Zimbabwe should be a safe country and justice for Tawanda should be served. Impala should give us answers on other abductions that have been happening in this country. Right now, we don’t know where is Itai Dzamara and now we have Tawanda.

Who took him? We need answers.
