Tinashe Sambiri|Nine MDC Alliance Youth Assembly Members were denied bail by a Masvingo magistrate on Wednesday.
The nine are accused of
participating in a gathering with intent to promote public violence, breach of peace or bigotry.
In a statement yesterday, MDC Masvingo Province denounced the incessant harassment of its members by the Zanu PF regime.
“The 9 Chivi @mdczimbabwe members were denied bail today (Wednesday) at Masvingo Magistrate Court.
The courts considered 8 April as the day to commence Trial. Adv Mureri of @ZLHRLawyers says he will Appeal ruling at High Court.
The denial of bail of the #Chivi9 is unconstitutional and the continuation of a pattern of persecution by @edmnangagwa ‘s regime as he seeks to dismantle the main opposition in pursuit of Zanu PF’s one party state agenda.
The abuse & weaponization of the court system must stop,” MDC Alliance Masvingo wrote on Twitter
