The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) on Wednesday said it was monitoring reports that MDC Alliance co-vice president, Tendai Biti was kidnapped.

Social media was Tuesday awash with claims that Biti had been attacked and abducted by unknown gunmen from his home in Harare on Monday night. Police said in a statement:

“The ZRP has checked with all Police Stations and no report of alleged abduction or kidnapping of Tendai Biti has been received. The Police is currently monitoring the situation.”

The statement came after MDC Alliance spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere on Tuesday morning said she had spoken to Biti who seemed to show the effects of exhaustion.”

Mahere said Biti seemed frazzled and said “pane zvirikuitika,” [something is happening. Added Mahere in a tweet:

“He said he had to attend to something urgently but would revert to me as soon as he is able. This is the verified position. Please await further updates from our official channels.”

In another tweet, Mahere dismissed reports that alleged that the party’s secretary-general Chalton Hwende had confirmed Biti’s alleged abduction.

The party’s treasurer-general, David Coltart, said he had spoken to Biti who said that suspected state operatives have been conducting surveillance at his home and law offices during the last few days and he feels “as if he is Beirut”.
