State drops charges against Jabulani Sibanda for Mugabe bedroom slur

Former leader of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) Jabulani Sibanda is now a free man after being on remand for more than two years. Sibanda was facing charges of insulting the president after he allegedly said “power is not sexually transmitted” while referring to First Lady Grace Mugabe in October 2014.

However, Sibanda had successfully applied to have his case referred to the Constitutional Court arguing that the law he was arrested under went against the constitution as it violated his right to freedom of expression.

Magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa said the time taken by the state shows that it was not ready to proceed and said that the state will have to continue by way of summons if it wanted to proceed.
