According to the police, who confirmed the detention, he was taken into custody when a friend accused him of property damage.
Robert Junior was arrested and detained at Avondale Police Station in the capital of the southern African nation.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms that Robert Tinotenda Mugabe (Junior) (31) has been arrested on Malicious Damage to Property allegations after a complaint by his friend Nkatazo Sindiso (31) that he destroyed property worth US$12 000 at house number 3A Verdi Lane, Strathaven, Harare,” police said in statement.
He was later released by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on Monday before appearing in court.
Following discussions with the prosecution, Mugabe Junior—represented by Ashiel Mugiya and Tungamirai Muganhiri—was freed.
The lawyers claim that the case was not supposed to be reported in the first place but was simply a misunderstanding with his colleagues and that it was not illegal in nature.
The case was settled at the vetting by the prosecution because Mugabe did not show up in court.
