The High will Thursday make a determination on a bail hearing of opposition Transform Zimbabwe’s leader Jacob Ngarivhume.
He has been in prison since the 20th of July when he was arrested for inciting public violence after rallying the citizenry to participate in the foiled 31 July anti-corruption protests which he had convened.

In denying him bail previously, courts argued that like the detained journalist Hopewell Chin’ono who was also arrested on the 20th of July for the same offences as the opposition leader, Ngarivhume was still a threat to national peace.
Last week, Ngarivhume was denied bail by Harare Magistrate Trynos Utahwashe prompting his lawyer Moses Nkomo to approach the High Court in a bid to have the ruling reversed.
Ngarivhume and Chin’ono are some of the government’s critics who were recently arrested following the exposure of grand corruption with President Mnangagwa’s circle.
A large number of government critics are still on the run after police indicated that they were wanted persons.
The alleged corruption which implicates the president’s family has resulted in the dismissal of the then Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo.
