The ZCTU leaders are on Z$20 billion bail that was granted by High Court on 19 May 2008 after they were arrested following comments they made at Dzivaresekwa Stadium while addressing workers on Workers Day, on May 1, 2008.

As part of the conditions for granting bail, the two are being barred from addressing any political gathering until this matter is finalized. They were also ordered to reside at their given home addresses and not to interfere with any state witnesses.
