Ncube MDC seeks Mutambara’s arrest
The smaller MDC faction led by Welshman Ncube wants Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara arrested on contempt of court charges for continuing to represent the party during weekly meetings with Mugabe.
Edwin Ndlovu, the MDC-N Bulawayo spokesperson said “We are filing court contempt charges against Mutambara because he should not be attending the principals’ meeting since he is not the MDC leader.
“He is violating a court order and should be arrested. He can do any other functions of the DPM, but not any other functions relating to the party that principals discuss every Monday,” Ndlovu said.
Last month Bulawayo High Court judge Justice Nicholas Ndou granted an interim relief order in favour of the MDC-N, ordering that Mutambara could not purport to be president of the party until the leadership dispute was fully resolved.
Mutambara is challenging the court interdict.
