He was was held for a while and questioned before he being released.
Speaking at a MDC rally on Sunday held at Ascot Stadium in Gweru, 280 kilometers from the capital Harare, Sifuna explained that the police wanted to find out why he was attending the rally.
“I was taken to a small room and questioned. I was surprised because I was hoping that this was an open and democratic society that welcomes everybody regardless of who you’re coming to see,” he said.
He said he was released after being warned not to cause any trouble at the event.
