By Staff Reporter | Pastor Evan Mawarire has broken into tears while praying for the nation after armed ZRP cops raided his church in Milton Park this morning.
The police Sunday morning pounced on Mawarire’s This Generation Church, with the pastor telling his congregants that he is not afraid of being arrested, because “not one day have I broken the law”.
Meanwhile the police have charged Mawarire with inciting public violence.
His lawyer, Harrison Nkomo who has been deployed by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights, ZLHR, has confirmed, the charges.
“They have charged him with inciting to cause public violence and I am here at the Harare central police station with him, waiting to for further instructions,” Nkomo told ZimEye.com in Harare, Sunday.
Mawarire was arrested Sunday morning while preaching in church.
The police arrested him after he had posted a video on social media encouraging people to protest against the worsening economy.
