Norton MP Temba Mliswa has been arrested by police at his house in Borrowdale after conducting a press conference where he alleged State Security minister Owen Ncube was targeting him.
Mliswa has been taken to Borrowdale Police Station but has not been charged yet.
Mliswa conducted the press meeting to “clear allegations” made by his estranged girlfriend Susan Mutami who set Twitter ablaze two weeks ago after posting that she is three months pregnant with the independent Member of Parliament’s twins.
She also claimed she had nudes and sex tapes about Mliswa which she would not release for the sake of the integrity of her children. In her accusations, Mutami added that Mliswa was gay.
During his address, Mliswa said Mutami was sent by minister Ncube in his CIO operations to allegedly investigate and destroy him politically.
Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed Mliswa’s arrest saying:
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms the arrest of Norton Member of Parliament, Temba Mliswa at his Borrowdale home today (yesterday) for contravening section 5 (3)(a) of the Public Health (Covid-19 Prevention, Containment and Treatment) (National Lockdown) (Consolidation and Amendment) Order, 2020, of Statutory Instrument 200/2020 as read with Statutory Instrument 10/2021.” Nehanda Radio
