The Zimbabwe Miners Federation president Henrietta Rushwaya’s gold saga involving 6kg that was seized while allegedly being smuggled to Dubai has sucked in two more Zimbabwe Republic Police bosses, police have revealed.
In a statement this morning, police said they have now arrested six people in connection with the recovered gold worth US$333 000.
Police said all the suspects are expected to appear in court soon.
Rushwaya, who is seeking bail at the courts, remains in custody following her arrest at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport on Monday morning.
Meanwhile, ZMF has suspended Rushwaya on allegations of putting the name of the organisation into disrepute following her arrest on Monday.
The ZMF management board, which consists members of the national executive, the council and regional representatives convened a meeting on Thursday afternoon in Gweru and suspended Rushwaya.
Announcing the suspension, the ZMF national chairperson Mr Makumba Njenje said Rushwaya’s deputy, Mr Marufu Sithole would be acting president with immediate effect. – The Herald.
