UPDATED: Police Officer Arrested For Saying That Mnangagwa Should Step Down For Chamisa

A Zimbabwe Republic Police officer based in Lupane was arrested on allegations of insulting President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Taison Hove (29) was arrested at Lupane Business centre on January 3 after he said Mnangagwa had failed and should step down in favour of Chamisa.

Hove is alleged to have said:

We are suffering because of ED Mnangagwa and we are paid money equivalent to US$100.

Hove’s lawyer, Bruce Masamvu, in his court submission, said:

I submit that in terms of section 85, as read with section 173(4) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe of 2013, I am entitled to seek a referral of this matter to the ConCourt.

Hove argued that State’s case against him did not disclose an offence justifiable in a democratic society. He described the charges as frivolous and vexatious.
