This Strategy Of Trying To Fake Abductions Is Now A Tired Script - ZANU PF

This Strategy Of Trying To Fake Abductions Is Now A Tired Script - ZANU PF

The ruling ZANU PF has described the alleged abductions are being staged, an overused and outdated scheme meant to tarnish the image of the government.

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) tweeted Saturday suggesting that former Harare Mayor Herbert Gomba had gone missing.

The party’s national spokesperson, advocate Fadzayi Mahere later posted that Mr Gomba had been found and was in the custody of his family.

But the ruling party said the flip-flopping in the CCC is just a continuation of the party’s ritualised tales of abductions meant to soil the country’s image.

ZANU PF director for Information and Publicity, Tafadzwa Mugwadi, said the CCC, led by Nelson Chamisa, has learnt nothing and forgotten nothing from history. He said:

This strategy of trying to fake abductions which are followed by fake news and fake alerts might have worked for some time but fortunately, ever since it was busted on Magombeyi, Samantha Kureya and lately the trio of Joana Mamombe and crew, it is now a tired script.

 What Hebert Gomba is not aware of is that his actions border on criminality and the sooner he realises that, it will be too late. Zimbabwe has paid a huge price in its global reputation owing to these shenanigans and this tomfoolery must stop forthwith.

The arms of the law must be long enough to stretch to those shenanigans. Investigations should be carried out and I am sure that these puppets will be exposed for what they are.

Activists Cecilia Chimbiri, Joanna Mamombe and Netsai Marowa claimed that they were abducted by alleged State security agents in May 2020 but the States denies the allegations.

A political analyst Mr Caution Torovei said “the stunts, which have now become tired, ineffective and monotonous, are carried out to tarnish the image of the country.”

The alleged abductions are being used to justify the sanctions against Zimbabwe by claiming human rights abuses.

Another political analyst and researcher Mr Alex Munyonga said as the “by-elections and the 2023 harmonised elections draw nearer, the West’s agents should be reminded that despite their silly stunts, their handlers do not participate in Zimbabwean elections.”

Where is Itai Dzamara? What happened to him. I'm sure this was not stage managed. Disappearances are there. Especially in Zimbabwe. What really hurt Zimbabwe was the disappearance of RASHIWE GUZHA. WAS IT STAGE MANAGED. Akatorova mufunge.

I HAVE TRIED TO FOLLOW UP THIS FORMER MOYOR, HERBERT GOMBA'S ARREST STORY. IT WAS ALLEGED THAT MEN IN CIVILIAN CLOTHES AND DRIVING THREE UNMARKED AND WITHOUT NUMBER PLATES CARS "ARRESTED" GOMBA FROM HIS FATHER'S GLEN NORAH PROPERTY.

THE MEN INFORMED GOMBA'S SECURITY MEMBERS THAT THEY WERE POLICEMEN FROM CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS DEPARTMENT [ CID ]. THEY TOOK GOMBA AWAY.

THE LAW REQUIRES THAT A POLICEMAN IN PLAIN CLOTHES MUST IDENTIFY HIMSELF BY PRODUCING HIS POLICE IDENTITY CARD WHEN HE CARRIES OUT HIS ARREST. THE LAW FURTHER REQUIRES THAT THE ACCUSED SHOULD BE INFORMED OF THE CRIME HE IS BEING ARRESTED FOR.

THE ABOVE MENTIONED LEGAL REQUIREMENTS WERE NOT FOLLOWED. I DO NOT BELIEVE IT WAS GOMBA WHO REPORTED THAT HE HAD BEEN KIDNAPED/ABDUCTED BECAUSE HE WAS ALREADY IN POLICE CUSTODY.

SUSPICIOUSLY, IT WAS HIS SECURITY MEMBERS WHO REPORTED THAT THEIR BOSS HAD BEEN ARRESTED BECAUSE WRONG AND ILLEGAL ARREST PROCEDURE HAD BEEN APPLIED BY THE ARRESTING SECURITY AGENTS.

POLICE DID NOT QUICKLY COME OUT IN THE OPEN TO REVEAL THAT THEY HAD GOMBA IN THEIR LAWFUL CUSTODY.

IN THE CASE OF MAMOMBE AND TWO OTHERS, POLICE FIRST DENIED THAT THEY HAD ARRESTED THEM, ONLY TO ADMITTED THAT THEY HAD ARRESTED THEM WHEN THEY WERE ACCOSTED WITH EVIDENCE OF THEIR BENZ WHICH WAS PARKED IN HARARE CENTRAL POLICE COMPLEX.

I IMPLORE POLICE TO OBSERVE LEGAL RULES AND PROCEDURES WHEN EFFECTING ARRESTS.

YOURS FAITHFULLY

If they are stage managed who have been convicted for the offense.

Murderers, evil to the bone. The number of innocent souls you murdered and trying to murder is jus too much in a democratic society. if you want to come clean, then simply come clean on the likes of Dzamara Itai and apologise for your evil shenanigans.

That journalist who disappeared and has not been found, that was stage managed too? The wounds that Mamombe and company had were also stage managed? Sevwral other abductions have occurred, with victims also showing self inflicted wounds? Tipsi ma serious mhani. these things are happening and they are deplorable
