MDC Alliance Youth Assembly Chairperson, Happymore Chidziva who is currently in police custody at Harare Central police on charges of committing public violence will appear in court tomorrow.

According to Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights, Chidziva reported at Harare Central Police law and order section in the morning today.

Chidziva was arrested together with the party’s Deputy Secretary-General for the Youth Assembly Chamunorwa Madya and Mafaiti Mubaiwa, a security personnel at the MDC headquarters.

Chidziva, who is represented by Jeremiah Bamu of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) is accused of contravening section 36 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) after he allegedly incited his MDC Alliance party supporters at a political rally held in July 2018 in Gweru in Midlands province to protest against an unfavourable election outcome and that they should defend their vote if Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) rigs the election in favour of ZANU PF party.

Mubaiwa and Madya have been charged with committing public violence when they participated at an MDC Alliance organized protest against delayed announcement of results by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.
