Robson Chininga, of Chininga village, Mudhindo in Guruve, was mobbed by Zanu PF supporters, who were angered by his actions after seeing him walking with a dog dressed in the ruling party regalia at Mudhindo Growth Point.

A police source said the mob took Chininga to a police base where he paid an admission of guilt fine of $40 after being charged with disorderly conduct in a public place.

“We fined Chininga after angry Zanu PF supporters brought him to our base, hence we charged him with disorderly conduct and he paid an admission of guilt fine of $40,” the source said.

Mashonaland Central police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe could not be reached for comment. NewsDay
