Farai Dziva|MDC Alliance Youth Assembly National Organizer and ward 4, Masvingo Urban Councillor Godfrey Kurauone was on Thursday morning denied bail by High Court Judge Justice Neville Wamambo.
Kurauone is facing three charges- undermining the authority of the President, Criminal Nuisance and Obstruction of Traffic.
Kurauone is unwell and he is being denied access to medication.
Kurauone was denied bail on the basis that he would “continue to commit similar offences.”
His lawyer, Advocate Martin Mureri said the charges have been “cooked up by political rivals in a bid to nail the youthful councillor.”
“The whole thing has been crafted by political foes who are determined to nail the young man.
For instance, Kurauone has not been feeling well for some time and above all he never went to Mashava where the State alleges he incited protests against the government,” said Advocate Mureri.
