Zanu PF member Sybeth Musengezi, who is challenging Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rise to party presidency in court, Thursday accused the ruling party leader of unleashing state security agents on him so that he drops the case.
“Since my arrest and ‘profiling’, unidentified people have been coming as they please at my house pretending to be making enquiries, some just park and sit by the roadside anytime they want,” said Musengezi.
Musengezi also said he took legal action against the police because they refused to return his identity card, which they took during the interrogation and harassment.
“The police also took my metal national identity card during interrogation and up to now they have not given it back to me. After making enquiries, they claimed ignorance. I had to make a formal report in case the ID card finds its way to a crime scene.
“They put me in jail, intimidated, inhumanely treated and harassed me and those close to me so as to break my spirit and force me into submission, but that’s not gonna (going to) happen,” Musengezi posted on Twitter.
Musengezi was granted $30,000 bail last week after spending days in detention for allegedly falsifying his address to become a member of the Zanu PF party.
