Eyewitnesses said the police besieged Sikhala's house in the early hours of Saturday morning and arrested the youths who are alleged to have been guarding Sikhala's house in anticipation of ZANU PF youths who threatened to invade the house on Saturday.
After the arrests, MDC members are said to have taken to the streets to protest causing police to beat citizens indiscriminately in Zengeza and doing door to door patrols.
Police are said to have fire teargas and gunshots at Chigovanyika and Huruyadzo areas causing shops to be closed.
