Justice Dube today took over the hearing from Justice Hlekani Mwayera who last week had to postpone the hearing three times. Madzore’s bail hearing was first deferred last week Wednesday to Thursday after State prosecutor; Edmore Nyazamba requested more time to file a response to the bail application.
On Thursday, the matter was postponed to Friday as Justice Mwayera said she wanted more time to go through the State’s response. On Friday, Justice Mwayera was forced to postpone the case to today after Nyazamba claimed he was attending a funeral.
Madzore is part of 28 MDC activists who are facing trumped-up charges of murdering a police officer in Glen View in May. He is detained at Chikurubi Maximum Prison.
