15 Men Attempt to Abduct Dr. Mugombeyi From Hospital
Since the return of the Zimbabwe Hospitals Doctors Association (ZHDA) President Doctor Peter Mugombeyi from his alleged abduction, life hasn’t been easy for the Mugombeyi family.
After going through a traumatic ordeal from the disappearance of their loved one, the Mugombeyi family are still finding it difficult to ensure their son’s safety, as 15 unidentified men attempted to abduct him again from his hospital bed.
Police on Tuesday foiled an attempt to snatch Dr. Peter Mugombeyi. The incident is said to have occurred at a private hospital in Harare.
Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa revealed this yesterday while giving an update on the controversial junior doctor and trade unionist.
She said 15 unidentified individuals sought to abduct Dr. Mugombeyi from his hospital bed, but police intervened to guarantee his safety, which is crucial in ongoing investigations of Dr. Mugombeyi’s alleged abduction on September 15.
And police had to ask the High Court to delay the departure of Dr. Mugombeyi to South Africa on grounds of seeking medical care, so that investigations into his alleged abduction would not be compromised.
However, last night, Judge President George Chiweshe dismissed with costs the police’s urgent application to reverse the High Court order allowing Dr. Mugombeyi to travel to South Africa for alleged treatment.
The Judge President also granted an application by Dr. Mugombeyi’s father, Mr Kingston Manetswa, seeking the release of his son who is reportedly under police guard at the Avenues Clinic.
