Armed anti-riot police over the weekend reportedly descended on Chief Felix Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni’s homestead in Ntabazinduna.
The heavily armoured police tried to impound a vehicle and traditional regalia in possession of Chief Ndiweni .
Chief Ndiweni’s lawyer, Mr Dumisani Dube from Mathonsi, Ncube Law Chambers confirmed the incident and said the anti-riot police were accompanied by Umguza district coordinator, Tapiwa Zivovoyi.
“I can confirm that anti-riot police accompanied by Umguza district coordinator visited Ndiweni’s home in Ntabazinduna on Saturday night,” said Dube.
“They wanted to confiscate his vehicle and regalia but unfortunately the Chief is outside the country. Again, as far as Ndiweni is concerned, he is still the chief because he has not received any official communication regarding his purported dismissal,” he added.
Dube also revealed that Chief Ndiweni has instructed him to challenge the dismissal at the High Court on grounds that the dismissal was unconstitutional.
