29 MDC members in detention for 16 months

It is now sixteen months since the arrest and illegal detention of 29 MDC members at Harare Central and Chikurubi Maximum Prisons on false charges of murdering a police officer in Glen View, Harare last year in May.

Their bail application is still pending at the Supreme Court after they were denied bail at the High Court when they were indicted for trial in March. Nothing positive has been coming from the courts on either their bail application or the continuation of their trial, which has been stalled since June.

Justice Chinembiri Bhunu is the trial judge at the High Court.

Those in remand prison on trumped-up charges of murdering the police officer in Glen View are; the Youth Assembly chairperson, Solomon Madzore and National Executive member, Last Maengahama, Councilloras Oddrey Sydney Chirombe and Tungamirai Madzokere, Cynthia Manjoro, Stanford Mangwiro, Tendai Chinyama, Jefias Moyo, Abina Rutsito, Gabriel Banda, Stephen Takaedzwa, Linda Masiyamhanje, Tafadzwa Billiard, Simon Mudimu, Dube Zwelibanzi, Simon Mapanzure, Augustine Tengenyika, Nyamadzowo Gapara, Paul Rukanda, Lazarus and Stanford Maengahama, Kerina Dewa, Memory Ncube, Rebecca Mafukeni, Yvonne Musarurwa, Phineas Nhatarikwa, Edwin Muingiri, Francis Vambai and Lovemore Magaya

Meanwhile, preparations are underway for the MDC 13th Anniversary celebrations to be held at White City Stadium in Bulawayo on 29 September 2012. – Issue – 426
