President Mnangagwa's Guards Assault Motorist

President Mnangagwa's Guards Assault Motorist

Members of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s escort Saturday assaulted a Harare motorist and later detained him on charges of intercepting his long motorcade.

The incident happened at the intersection of Seke and Cripps roads in the morning.

Malvern Samakande was detained at Mbare police station after police cut him off and assaulted the 25-year-old on charges of obstructing the presidential motorcade.

He was only released after paying an admission of guilty fine of $2000 following the intervention of Human Rights NGO Forum lawyer Nobel Chinhanu. Chinhanu confirmed the incident. He said:

The Forum has attended today at Mbare Police Station to represent Samakande, who was accused of failure to obey road signs and signals.

Allegations are that Samukande failed to give way to the presidential motorcade.

It was alleged that Samukande failed to obey multiple police officers stopping the movement of traffic and was only stopped by the presidential guards.

He was released after the payment of an admission of guilty fine.

Several motorists were in the past assaulted by the late former president Robert Mugabe and now Mnangagwa’s security men for not giving way to the presidential motorcade.

Riders on the motorcade have also been killed after motorists failed to observe the unwritten law of giving way to the presidential motorcade.

In 2016, Joseph Chakanetsa was jailed for two years for cutting Mugabe’s motorcade in the capital after the court found him guilty of negligent driving.

He was slapped with another 60-day jail term for failing to stop after committing the offence.

His driver’s licence was cancelled and he was banned from driving heavy vehicles and public transport for life.
