HARARE, A parliamentarian and a former Minister of Zimbabwe were arrested in the last hours as the police found in their respective residences tons of sugar and corn flour, local press reported.

According to reports, parliamentarian Masango Matambanadzo was arrested by police after a search in his house where about 30 tons of corn flour were found. The official is kept in custody before being presented to the courts.

According to sources, the police is investigating how the deputy acquired that amount of cereal and although Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba did not offer details, she confirmed that he is under arrest.

For his part, the former Minister of Sports, Art and Recreation and Deputy Makhosini Hlongwane was arrested the day before by the police on his farm outside the city of Zvishavane, where about 10 tons of sugar was seized, which he could not justify because he lacked the corresponding documents.

He argued that it was 'a donation he could not divulge.'

Meanwhile, the Independent Zimbabwe newspaper stated today that the sons of former President Robert Mugabe, Bellarmine Chatunga and Robert Junior, his stepson Russen Goreraza and his son-in-law Simba Chikone could be arrested shortly on charges of illicit trade in gold, abuse of power, corruption and murder.
