HARARE – ZIMBABWE National Students Union (ZINASU) president Takudzwa Godfrey Ngadziore was back in court at the weekend facing false charges of participating in a public gathering to incite public violence.
The 22-year-old, who had been granted bail last Monday in another matter, appeared before the same magistrate Judith Taruvinga, who reserved the bail ruling to tomorrow.
Allegations are that on September 18 at around 11am, the police carried out Covid-19 enforcement patrols along Chiremba Road, adjacent Braeside shops.
It is said that Ngadziore and 20 other accomplices, whose identities are yet to be established, gathered at OK Mart traffic lights holding placards and dressed in prison garbs in full compliance of his bail conditions.
They then began demonstrating against Impala Car Rental’s manner of doing business.
Ngadziore and his alleged accomplices sang songs, and also uttered ‘mbavha idzo dzakuuya’ pointing towards police officers and a misunderstanding arose between the two parties, the court heard.
Ngadziore was reportedly arrested, while trying to flee.
Prosecutor Idah Maromo opposed bail arguing that Ngadziore committed the offence 101 metres away from Impala Car Rental after being barred from getting into the 100 metres radius from Impala Car Rental premises and has the propensity to commit a similar offence if granted bail. State Media
