Pro-democracy activists Patson Dzamara and Makomborero Haruzivishe are challenging both their conviction and sentence for allegedly obstructing or defeating the course of justice. The two are currently serving 315 hours of community service after Harare Magistrate Josephine Sande convicted them after they had been accused of stealing a policeman’s hat and button stick. Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) lawyer Obey Shava filed the appeal on behalf of the two arguing that Magistrate Sande erred and misdirected herself by applying the wrong principles of the law to arrive at her decision of convicting the duo.
