Mutambara, 3 MPs Released From Police Custody

Bulawayo MDC dissident faction leader Professor Arthur Mutambara and three other MPs were released from police custody last night after spending a day behind bars following their arrest early yesterday while campaigning for candidate Gabriel Chaibva.

Zimdaily heard late last night that their lawyers had successfully negotiated their release.

The robotics professor was held in custody from 8:35am in filthy holding cells at Glen View police station together with former MP Gabriel Chaibva, Morgan Changamire, the deputy Organising Secretary and Priscilla Misihairabwi, the deputy Secretary General. The officials were arrested while on a road show in Budiriro where a by-election will be held today to elect a replacement for MDC MP Gilbert Shoko who passed on in February.
