#Tajamuka leaders trial date set

HARARE - Three #Tajamuka leaders accused of addressing a media briefing against the introduction of bond notes last year will stand trial on February 17.

#Tajamuka spokesperson Promise Mkwananzi, 35, is being jointly charged with activists Mehluli Dube, 35, and Kudakwashe Manjonjo, 23, on allegations of participating in a gathering with intent to promote public violence or criminal nuisance.

The trio appeared before Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa represented by Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights’ Obey Shava.

Prosecutor Sabastian Mutizirwa alleged that on November 28 at corner Rezende and Jason Moyo Avenue in Harare, Mkwananzi was arrested in the company of other members of Tajamuka clad in T-shirts inscribed Tajamuka, Enough is Enough, No to bond notes #hatichada #hatichatya.

The court heard that the accused persons took turns to address a gathering of about 25 people inciting them to shun the introduction of bond notes and alleged corruption by senior government officials.

It was alleged that Mkwananzi and his team encouraged the gathered public to participate in violent demonstrations in which they allegedly vowed to attack police officers who stood in their way.

Mkwananzi is also facing further public violence charges with 13 other activists after they allegedly participated in bloody clashes between protesters and the law enforcement agents last year.

They are accused of torching State-owned vehicles during the melee.
