Lawyer Tapiwa Makanza is spending the night at Rhodesville Police Station after he was charged with defeating the course of justice, the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has revealed.
Makanza is alleged to have created a fictitious character, Simbarashe Zuze, who challenged the appointment of Kumbirai Hodzi as Prosecutor General.
In the case in question, he instructed Advocate Thabani Mpofu to oppose the appointment.
Makanza is being represented by ZLHR lawyer Paidamoyo Saurombe.
Two other lawyers, Advocates Mpofu and Choice Damiso were also been arrested over the same case last week.
Mpofu was granted a $20 000 bail.
