Police officers chasing after striking nurses during the July demonstrations.

Moses Sigauke a nurse, appeared before Magistrate Zihove for routine remand on charges of incitement after he allegedly recorded a video in July while in detention at Mbare Police Station and posted it on Facebook encouraging nurses to join in demonstrating

Prosecutors alleged that Sigauke posted a message on Facebook which reads; “Ngatingouya tizadze camp tese tiite demo yedu tiri mu camp. Handiti ndimo munonzi muri illegal,” which when loosely translated means; “Let’s all gather at the police station and stage our demonstration.”

By posting such a message, prosecutors charged that Sigauke had incited nurses to gather at Mbare Police Station and demonstrate and cause violence.

For allegedly committing this offence, Sigauke was ordered to pay RTGS$500 in bail money.
