Views
State Media reports that police have arrested two more women who allegedly received training in Maldives with intent to roll out violent demonstrations in the country meant to remove President Emmerson Mnangagwa from power.
They are the Director of Female Prisoners Support Trust Rita Nyampinga and Sithabile Dewa, the Director of Women’s Academy for Leadership and Political Excellence.
The two were arrested soon after landing at Robert Gabriel Mugabe (RGM) International Airport on Monday, before being taken to Harare Central Police Station for further investigations.
They will appear in court soon.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrests yesterday.
The arrest of the two brings to seven the number of suspects arrested in connection with the case since last week.
Last week, five members of Civil Society Organisations who government claimed received training in Maldives with intent to roll out violent demonstrations in the country, appeared in court facing allegations of subverting a constitutionally-elected Government.
