Leader Madzore to spend a week more in custody

MDC Youth Assembly President Solomon Madzore will spend another week in remand prison after the state invoked section 121 of the draconian criminal procedure and reform Act.
A Bindura magistrate had granted leader Madzore $100 bail after Defense lawyer Charles Kwaramba of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights had successfully applied for bail.

 Kwaramba who was assisted by Jeremiah Mutongi Bhamu told the court that the State had misled the Jury in its submissions when it deliberately lied that Madzore had no family since Madzore had a pregnant wife present in court and two children.

Kwaramba told the court that it is shocking that the records are present at the Attorney General’s office and the High Court that Madzore is married and the prosecutor did not bother to check.

The Attorney also told the court that it is shocking that the State said Madzore did not have any valuable assets when he in fact owns three vehicles, a Toyota vitz, Mercedes compressor and an Isuzu KB Twin cab which was parked just outside the court.

Addressing party members outside the court Assembly Secretary General Promise Mkwananzi said we are disappointed by the behavior of the Prosecutors who have reduced themselves into political repressive apparatus instead of acting professionally.

Youth Assembly Deputy President Costa Machingauta had to be whisked away from the police after they had sort to arrest him for reasons better known to them.  

Together to the end,building a youth with a difference.
