He was responding to a question by Ambassador Timo Olkkonen, the European Union Ambassador to Zimbabwe who wanted clarity on his post which suggested that the alleged abductions were stage-managed.
The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Publicity, and Broadcasting Services, Nick Mangwana has said that the government’s official position on the alleged abduction of three female members of the opposition MDC, Joannah Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova, shall be stated in due course. Mangwana had posted saying:
It’s a diversionary tactic. A poorly choreographed attempt to throw a curveball at the system. But you can’t fool people by playing the same scene many times over and expect to successfully pull wool over their eyes. You have been seen a mile away.
In response to Ambassador Olkkonen’s question, Mangwana responded saying: An official Govt statement is on its way, Your Excellency. Govt would never sign off an official position using a spoof moniker, ”Charity Nicole Maodza-Hondo.”
Some are saying that the trio was abducted by state security since the Zimbabwe Republic Police issued a statement admitting that they had arrested them during a protest in Warren Park on Wednesday.
The police, however, later said that they did not know the whereabouts of the three who were found dumped on Thursday night in Bindura, about 87 kilometres from Harare.
