MDC leader Nelson Chamisa has spoken after his motorcade was barred from entering the National Sports Stadium for the sending off of national hero, Oliver Mtukudzi.

Chamisa confirmed to the Mail and Telegraph that his cars were blocked but he refused to categorically state whether he was in any of the cars.

“I cannot give a comment now and state whether I was there or not because that will be exposing  how I travel and may compromise my security,” Chamisa said.

But a source told the Mail and Telegraph :“He (Chamisa) was not in any of the cars that were blocked, that was an advance party and when he was advised that the cars were blocked, he immediately made a U-Turn.”

Justice minister Ziyambi Ziyambi confirmed that senior MDC -A officials approached him seeking permission to enter inside the NSS with their motorcade.

“Mwonzora and Zvizvai came to me and said security details were blocking Chamisa’s motorcade from entering the stadium. Iasked them whether it was Chamisa or the vehicles that were not allowed to enter but they could not say anything.”We sent our senior security details to the gate but the cars had already left.”

“Only the President’s motorcade is allowed to drive into the stadium on national events so there was an attempt to breach security measures,” he said.
