The MDC National Chairperson Tabitha Khumalo has just been arrested in Bulawayo. It is not clear yet what she’s being charged with.
Bulawayo today saw the heavy presence of police following plans for an MDC-led demonstration on to take place on Monday. Tensions in Zimbabwe’s second-largest city were also heightened by the imprisonment on an 18-month sentence of outspoken Ntabazinduna traditional leader, Chief Ndiweni.
