The founder and editor of popular news website ZimLive.com, Mduduzi Mathuthu has handed himself to the police after having been summoned last week.
Police’s CID Law and Order Bulawayo requested to interview him on a yet to be ascertained matter, last Wednesday.
Mathuthu ‘s lawyers had written to the police for clarification after pressing charges of unlawful entry against some officers who intruded his Mahatshula home.
He alleged that an off-duty police officer, Detective Sergeant Patrice Nyanhete – from CID Law & Order in Bulawayo – was positively identified after visiting Mathuthu’s home in a suspected plot to abduct the journalist on Friday.
The unwelcome visitors left instructions that the Mathuthu should present himself to Office 12 at the Law and Order section at Bulawayo Central Police Station and see Nyanhete.
Mathuthu’s lawyer Nqobani Sithole later went to the police station but was advised that Nyanhete was “off duty”. On further enquiry, Law and Order detectives present said Mathuthu was not a person of interest, according to the lawyer.
