    CHIVHU – Two lorries laden with 58 tonnes of copper were intercepted by Police in Chivhu on Friday and there is suspicion that the contraband belongs to the son of one of the country’s top politicians.
    Police at Chivhu are mum about the issue despite repeated calls for comment. Sources placed the value of the copper discovered at a roadblock at Featherstone at $250 000. 
    Sources said the truck drivers did not have the necessary documents on them and Police impounded the vehicles which are now parked at Chivhu Police Station. The drivers were arrogant and would not answer questions, said the source.
    “This is a very sensitive matter and don’t expect anyone to talk to you about it. We are waiting for instructions from the above on what to do with the trucks (with SA registration numbers) but otherwise we have traced the copper to the son of a top politician,” said an officer who spoke on condition of anonymity.
    The Mirror faced problems in trying to get a comment from Mash East police spokesperson Inspector Tendai Mwanza.
    National Police spokesperson Charity Charamba said she is on leave and referred all questions to Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who was not answering calls.
