A senior party official has said Zimbabwean police have raided a house used by members of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai party, in search of weapons, notes AlJazeera. According to the secretary general of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), Tendai Biti, police entered the house in a suburb of Harare, late on Friday. “Last night, armed police numbering over 50 raided this residence on the pretext that they were looking for arms stolen from the police or the army,” he affirmed. According to Biti, police also “beat up the wife and sister of the caretaker before they started digging part of the garden ostensibly in search of weapons.” Tsvangirai says he will only resume unity relations once key disputed issues are resolved.
