According to unconfirmed reports, the independent legislator was arrested at his Karoi farm on Friday. He is in for allegedly conducting a youth development programme despite giving the police prior necessary notifications.
Journalists who were covering the event are also allegedly being held up at Mliswa’s Spring Farm.
According to MISA Zimbabwe, they have despatched a lawyer to assist four journalists currently held up at Mliswa’s farm.
“Journalists Paul Pindani, Farai Chikore, Admire Chitsungo, Naome Magorimbo, Nomsa Sanje detained at Temba Mliswa’s Spring farm in Karoi during a youth in farming tour. Owner of the farm has been taken to Karoi Central police station. Lawyer deployed to attend to the matter,” said MISA in a tweet.
The vocal legislator is currently out on Z$20 000 bail after Harare magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro freed him. The charges were of violating national lockdown protocols after conducting a press conference at his Borrowdale residence a week ago.
