ZANU PF yesterday said it had recovered two of its vehicles that had been “stolen” by a group of disgruntled party elements from party provincial headquarters in Marondera following the ouster of former chairman Ray Kaukonde.
The vehicles reportedly went missing from the party’s provincial offices last December at a time Kaukonde’s executive was booted out for sympathising with former Vice-President Joice Mujuru. Interim provincial chairperson Aeneas Chigwedere told NewsDay yesterday that police had recovered the vehicles although the suspects had not yet been arrested.
“The police informed us that they have recovered the vehicles, but we are still to receive them. But some of our party youths who attended President Robert Mugabe’s 91st birthday celebrations in Victoria Falls saw the suspects at the event meaning they were not arrested,” Chigwedere said.
But police in Marondera declined to comment, referring all questions to their superiors in Harare.
