Zimbabwe opposition MPs arrested after protest

Two opposition MPs have been arrested in Zimbabwe following violent protests over the killing of an opposition member in Chitungwiza near the capital, Harare.

Political tensions have been rising in the community after Moreblessing Ali’s severed remains were found in a well, close to three weeks after she was reported missing.

MPs Job Sikhala and Godfrey Sithole were arrested on allegations of inciting public violence, according to their Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party.

The police have also confirmed the arrest of Job Sikhala, accusing him of being connected to “orgy of public violence” in the Nyatsime area, Chitungwiza – about 30km from the capital, Harare.
