Two Chinhoyi men have been arrested on charges of kidnapping a police officer and a soldier.

Desire Mwakurudza and Felix Makausi last Friday appeared before provincial magistrate Tayengwa Chibanda facing two counts of kidnapping and were granted $200 each bail.

Prosecutors said on May 16, the duo kidnaped a police officer, Joseph Kamuremwa, and Danny Badalani, a soldier. They dumped the two at a complex where they were assaulted by illegal money dealers.

The accused's lawyer Kudzi Choga said the two were over-detained exceeding the stipulated 48-hour period.

They will appear in court on June 10 for trail.
