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.
