ZIMBABWE POLICE have summoned MDC President Nelson Chamisa's head of security for questioning in connection a dramatic tussle that saw the opposition leader survive what the party claims was a kidnap attempt. MDC officials reported the incident at Mabvuku police station.
MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume told the media at the Morgan Tsvangirai House, the party's main headquarters, on Monday that MDC head of security, Edward Gudhe was summoned for questioning by the police CID Law and Order Division.

Gudhe's fate was not yet known by end of business Monday.

The MDC spokesperson further claimed the state harboured a plot to kill his boss through a state-managed road accident.

At the rally Chamisa had repeated claims that intelligence and military operatives had been trailing him.

"I would like to acknowledge members of the Central intelligence Organisation and military intelligence," he said.

"Why I say so is because they have been following me whilst I was having prayers in Domboshava. They (intelligence officers) block our way. Even when I'm not with my entourage they follow and block them."
Chamisa said he was planning to meet South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and other Sadc leaders to apprise them of the deteriorating political and economic environment in Zimbabwe.

He said Mnangagwa's government had failed to address the economic problems facing the country. Chamisa has been mobilising his supporters to stage demonstrations against Mnangagwa, claiming that the Zanu-PF leader rigged the July 30 elections.

The army recently denied allegations that its intelligence officers were trailing the opposition leader.
