MDC Alliance co-principal, Tendai Biti has skipped the country at a time when police are looking for him in connection to utterances he made concerning the election results and violence that engulfed Harare recently.

Biti skipped the country into Zambia when police had indicated that they wanted to question him following riots that led to the death of six people and the destruction of property as well as the setting alight of a number of vehicles in Harare.

Before the proclamation of the presidential election results by ZEC, Biti had made utterances alleging that MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa had won the elections in contravention to the law which gives ZEC the sole responsibility of announcing election results.

The ZRP had also warned political leaders who have incited their followers into committing acts of violence that the long arm of the law will certainly catch up with them.

Meanwhile, the BBC reports that Mr Tendai Biti has been denied asylum by Zambian authorities.

Zambian Foreign Minister, Mr Joe Malanji was quoted by the BBC as saying Mr Biti’s grounds for asylum were weak.
