Meanwhile, Cozet Chirinda who was arrested with the other six activists was also released. However, she was asked to pay an admission of guilt fine of $20 on the same charge of Disorderly Conduct in a public place as defined in section 41 of the Criminal Law (codification and Reform) Act section (b). She escaped with a fine due to her asthmatic condition which prevented her from attending court with the others.

Their charge emanated from their singing and chanting in front of the court as they celebrated the sentence handed down in the case of their fellow comrade Welcome Zimuto and his five co-accused. They are also alleged to have deposited fliers at the courts with as yet unknown demands.
