Norton Lawmaker Mliswa Arrested

Outspoken Independent Norton lawmaker Temba Mliswa has been arrested at his Borrowdale residence whilst addressing journalists.

Mliswa who was responding to allegations of corruption levelled against him by Australian based businesswoman Susan Mutami was picked up by the police as he was about to conclude the briefing.

Mutami accused the legislator of corruption and being a homosexual who had attempted to poison President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s son.

A senior police officer who refused to identify himself to journalists stormed the press briefing accompanied several anti-riot operatives and force-marched a puzzled Mliswa into VXR vehicle.

It is believed he was being taken to Borrowdale police station which is less than a hundred metres from the lawmaker’s home.

The senior police officer refused to shed light on why they had taken the vocal MP to the police station.

“We are not commenting on this until we speak to him (Mliswa),” said the officer.

Mliswa signed a warned and cautioned statement in which the police accused him of convening a gathering despite Government prohibiting gatherings during COVID-19 lockdown

The legislator vehemently denied the allegations leveled against him saying everything he did was above board.
