According to multiple online reports, the Zimbabwean Minister of Finance, Ignatius Chombo, has been arrested by the country's army who recovered a whopping $10 million from him.
Chombo is reported to have been arrested after gunfire was exchanged between his security and members of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) last night.
Chombo is reported to be in custody after the ZDF arrested a number of ministers and senior party officials over allegations of “committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.“
While speaking on Al Jazeera, Norton MP, Temba Mliswa, backed the military's intervention and says that it was necessary because Grace Mugabe had usurped power from Mugabe.
Mliswa said: "Just for your own information, Minister Chombo's house which was invaded and he was arrested. He had 10 million dollars on him."
Mliswa said that former Vice President, Emmerson Mnangagwa will take over from President Robert Mugabe, but could neither deny nor confirm that Mnangagwa is in Zimbabwe, adding that Mugabe’s mistake was to fire Mnangagwa.
