MABVUKU legislator James Maridadi (MDC-T) was reportedly arrested at Beitbridge Border Post yesterday for video-filming Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) officials without authority and crossing the port without valid travel documents.

Sources at the border post said the former broadcaster was nabbed around 4:20am following a heated exchange with Zimra officials over duty charges for his relative’s imported Toyota Fortuner vehicle. Maridadi is alleged to have described the charges as “too high” and accused Zimra officials of seeking to rip them off.
The opposition MP could not be reached for comment, while MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu said he had also failed to contact him.
“I have been trying all his numbers since morning to hear his side of the story, but he is not reachable. I wanted to hear from the horse’s mouth, but I couldn’t reach him,” Gutu said.
