Firebrand MDC legislator for Zengeza West Job Sikhala has vowed to “fight” after his 18-year-old daughter was Monday arrested and detained by police at St Mary Police Station in Chitungwiza for not wearing a face mask.

The opposition top politician posted on Twitter Monday claiming his daughter, Deborah was merely having a photoshoot when police pounced on her.

“My 18 yr old daughter Deborah, in black top & mask hs bn arrested by @PoliceZimbabwe at 1400hrs & is detained at St. Mary’s police station.They arrested her when she ws having her birthday photoshoot at Huruyadzo.

“They allege she ws not properly putting on her mask. I will fight,” he said.

The aggressive politician and lawyer however did not state how he intended to challenge the incident.

Face masks were made compulsory by government as one of the measures aimed at preventing the spread of Covid-19.

As a politician, Sikhala has been arrested many times for different offences associated with opposition politics.
