Evan Mawarire’s January Protests Trial Set For 24 June

The trial date for Evan Mawarire has been set to 24 June 2019. Mawarire together with the President of Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Union (ZCTU) Peter Gift Mutasa, and Secretary General Japhet Moyo are facing charges of inciting public violence which took place in the country earlier this year.

Mawarire is the leader of #ThisFlag Zimbabwe and together with his counterparts Mutasa and Moyo published a video which went viral on social media urging Zimbabwean workers not to report duty.

Harare Magistrate Mrs. Rumbidzai Mugwagwa dismissed their applications for refusal of further remand stating:

“The State had outlined that they would carry out investigations within six weeks which are up, the State should learn to abide by the timelines they would have set themselves

But looking at the time the accused persons have been on remand, the State has made progress, thereby application for refusal for further remand is dismissed.”
