POLICE Commissioner-General Godwin Tandabantu Matanga yesterday warned that police are ready to arrest opposition MDC leader Nelson Chamisa for allegedly inciting the August 1 post-election violence which left six people dead and several others injured.

According to, Matanga was testifying at the Kgalema Motlanthe Commission of Inquiry into the disturbances of the 1st of August 2018.

Matanga claimed that the only basis the law enforcement agents have not arrested Chamisa is that of President Emmerson Mnangagwa's proposed plan to constitutionally formalise the position of Leader of the Opposition.

"I still feel that it would be very improper to arrest the leader of the opposition party in the name of Nelson Chamisa because this is a position that was formed by the President," said Matanga.

Matanga told commissioners that Chamisa had incited violence with the support of a Kenyan activist the ZRP boss identified as Silas Jakakimba.
