‘It’s Satanic, Pure Witchcraft’, Bhasikiti Condemns Mamombe Imprisonment

Former Masvingo Province Resident Minister Kudakwashe Bhasikiti, who is a senior member of the Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF), has condemned Harare magistrate Bianca Makwande for jailing MDC Alliance MP Joanna Mamombe, calling the decision “satanic”.

Makwande confined Mamombe, who has been out on bail and admitted at a private health facility for a mental illness, to Harare Remand Prison for two weeks where she will be examined by two doctors to determine her fitness to stand trial.

Bhasikiti asserted that efforts should be directed at finding Mamombe’s abusers rather than persecuting the victim. He posted on Twitter:

Politics aside Hon.J.Mamombe is someone’s daughter, culturally my daughter and ED’s daughter as well. After her traumatic experience, all effort should be at finding her abusers. Now that she is mentally traumatised, for a woman magistrate to throw her into jail is Satanic.

Zva Bianca zvoda investigation. Zvichiri zvebasa here kana kuti,”Ndamuwanirapo.” 2. Kana kutumwa. 3. Kuroya masikati. (Magistrate Makwande has to be investigated because this has nothing to do with justice. Either it’s revenge, she is working under instruction or its simply blatant witchcraft).

MDC Alliance treasurer-general David Coltart noted that Makwande made her ruling despite the State not asking for Mamombe to be taken to prison. Said Coltart:

I am told that the State didn’t even ask for Joanna Mamombe to be taken to prison. This particular magistrate, who has wrought so much injustice in Harare, did it mero motu. Shocking. This is grave abuse of her office and she deserves universal censure.

#ThisFlag Movement leader Pastor Evan Mawarire lamented the “callousness’ of Zimbabwean courts in jailing a mental patient. He wrote:

Zimbabwean courts today displayed pure evil. Our youngest MP Joana Mamombe who was abducted and sexually abused and was receiving treatment has again been imprisoned – to be assessed by state doctors. The sheer callousness Joana they fear you and your generation. Remain strong!

    1. Dear young woman lawyer, focus on ensuring justice for the down-trodden. Zimbabwe is sinking because of punishing the innocent for complaining about corruption and exercising their democratic right to protest the illegitimacy and general mismanagement of the economy
    2.Allowing yourself as a lawyer to be used to punish the innocent is regrettable.
    4.Making lawyers like you show other women in Zimbabwe that it is alright to be used to fight other women even though they are fighting for the truth is also inconceivable
    5. In case, it has missed your notice, women constitute 52% of the Zimbabwean population and an estimated 70% of agricultural labour. To be effective in their endeavors, They need to be respected without which this country will continue to be a supermarket for other countries instead of being productive, self -sufficient , export and enjoy a balance of payment, thus ensure sustainable enterprise, employment and wealth creation, a high human development index, human health and happiness by 2030 starting now. Lawyers like you should protect women and all democratic activists, they look up to people like you! y. . FOOD FOR THOUGHT

  2. we are a cursed nation people , from the few posts on this platform it is a non event in a country of more that 13 million people . What really will make us outraged , a day like this Tendayi Biti talks about gym in Parliament , Chamisa blows over the top . Whos is going to protect and take action for this young woman. Zimbabwe moves on and so does the world . At worst even if she did fake does she really deserve this treatment . Its a pity that a national calls EMMERSON MUNANGWA the President , the title has lost its value . Am sitting here in Mzansi at home and imagining kuti those guys and ladies at Mereki are enjoying Friday Braii . Nero is his house he tells madam tochazvigadzirisa . We should be ashamed of ourselves as human beings . Remember Magret Dongo saying too parliament mese muri vakadzi vaMugabe including male parliamentarians . God bless us for are a weak nation of cowards and very selfish beings . Chin’ono akaworera in Prison for us , so didthe pastor and Sikhala. What else can be done to us to say enough is enough.

  3. Zimbabweans’ are too soft when such events happen,we carry fear,good at commenting on social media when you are outside the country,lets unity like ppl of Belarus,Cameron etc
