PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa's business partner and former British Cabinet minister, Peter Hain has said "treatment of Tendai Biti is terrible and oppressive." 

Hain also said Mnangagwa "is not fulfilling his promise of new Zimbabwe era."

"Treatment of Tendai Biti is terrible and oppressive: with army killings last week and police forced dispersal of journalists at MDC press conference @edmnangagwa is not fulfilling his promise of new Zimbabwe era," reads Hain tweet.

Hain is the special adviser to South African Moti Group of Companies.

According to Newsday, Mnangagwa, his deputy Constantino Chiwenga and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces are believed to have facilitated the Moti Group to set up the African Chrome Fields (ACF) in the Midlands town, Kwekwe.

There were reports on Wednesday that former finance minister and MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti evaded arrest and sought asylum in neighbouring Zambia.

However it was later reported on the same that Zambia denied Biti asylum because his grounds were not meritorious.

"He wanted to seek asylum but his grounds are not meritorious. As it is, we are just keeping him for safe custody before he heads back to Harare," Zambia's Foreign Minister Joe Malanji told the BBC.
