MDC-T Legislator James Maridadi Leaves Beitbridge After Brief Detention

Police spokesperson Charity Charamba said Dendera was taken in for questioning following allegations by the opposition party’s security department that he attempted to fire-bomb the MDC headquarters last month.

Member of Parliament for Mabvuku-Tafara, James Maridadi of the Movement for Democratic Change party led by former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, told VOA’s Studio 7 that he was safe and heading home, following a brief detention at the Beitbridge Border post, earlier.

Maridadi said he could not comment further on his detention, allegedly for videotaping customs officials and other travelers visiting the country, until he consulted with this lawyers.

Zimbabwe Revenue Authority officials also accused Maridadi of intimidating them.
