THE spokesman of Job Sikhala’s MDC-99 party has been arrested after allegedly driving off in a US$57,000 display motor at a car show.

Aaron Muzungu, 38, chalked up 1,300km in eight days before cops caught up with him, the Harare Magistrates’ Court heard on Tuesday.

Muzungu denies auto theft and was bailed to appear on June 19 by magistrate Hosea Mujaya.

Prosecutors say on May 4 this month, Muzungu attended a Croco Motors promotional event in Harare and had presented himself to staff as a potential buyer.

He took a liking for a Ford Ranger T6 truck which had keys in the ignition and a full tank of diesel.

Muzungu allegedly drove off while staff was busy with other customers. He was long gone when the vehicle was finally reported missing.

Over the next eight days, Croco Motors offered a US$5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of the vehicle which had done just 17 kilometres.

Detectives from the CID Vehicle Theft Squad finally traced the vehicle to Muzungu, who told the investigators he had BOUGHT the truck at the car show. Its new mileage was 1,317km.
