Masarira, Dzamara in court for allegedly insulting police officers

Five human rights activists appeared in court yesterday for allegedly insulting police officers at the Harare Gardens.  All five denied the charge.  The five are Partson Dzamara, Linda Masarira, Makomborero Haruziviishe, Rangariraishe Mhende and Leverage Masvondo.

The state witness one, Assistant Inspector Gift Chingwaru claimed that the activists were having a  meeting in the gardens and were wearing similar T-shirts.  Under cross-examination by defence lawyer Obey Shava, Chingwaru was unable to identify how this constituted an offence.  He also claimed that the activists labelled police officers puppets.

The trial continues on January 23.
