MDC-T Matabeleland South Senator Mlotshwa and some villagers from Matankeni, Mahetshe and Zwehamba have been arrested for demonstrating against Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Villagers today staged a demonstration against Mnangagwa and Agricultural and Rural Development Authority (Arda) over its farming project that has encroached into their ancestral farming lands.

The arrested are being held at Maphisa Police station.

Kholwani Ngwenya of Mabhikwa legal Practitioners instructed by Abammeli is onsite.

ARDA has been expanding its agricultural land by demolishing homes of villagers who have been staying there for more than 60 years and going so far as moving graves.
