Four MDC supporters acquitted

Four of the twelve MDC members who were arrested in January on flimsy charges of public violence and assaulting police officers in central Harare were today acquitted at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts.

The 12 were arrested when armed riot police stormed Harvest House, the MDC headquarters and arrested them. Party regalia including DVDs and music CDs were looted during the process from the party’s “Shop of Excellence”.

Those acquitted are; Leonard Dendera, Patson Murimoga, Paul Majarira and Jefias Moyo.

Those still standing trial are; Barnabas Mwanaka, Taurai Nherera, Simbarashe Makaha, Muchineripi Muzengeza, Murambiwa Dzwenge and Kudakwashe Usai and a ruling will be made on 21 June.

On their arrests in January, the 12 were seriously assaulted by the police while in custody at the Harare Central Police Station leading to the hospitalisation of Mwanaka after the police broke his arm and leg. -The MDC Today – Issue 367
