Top MDC officials arrested

Two senior officials of the MDC were arrested this morning in what is thought may be the start of a wider swoop on leaders of the opposition party.

Welshman Ncube, secretary-general, was arrested as he drove from Bulawayo to Plumtree. Gift Chimanikire, deputy secretary-general, was arrested in Harare. It was not clear what charges had been brought against the two. (ZWNEWS)
