Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) president Takudzwa Ngadziore will spend more time in prison after his bail application hearing was postponed to 1 October by a High Court judge.
Ngadziore appeared before the High Court this Tuesday for the determination of his bail appeal but the matter was postponed to Thursday to allow the State to file its response to his freedom bid.
The student leader’s lawyers from the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) said in a statement:
ZINASU leader [Takudzwa Ngadziore] will have to spend more time in jail awaiting the outcome of his bail appeal filed by Webster Jiti of [the ZLHR] after High Court Judge postponed hearing and determination of his matter to Thursday to allow the State to file its response to his freedom bid.
Takudzwa Ngadziore was denied bail at Harare Magistrates Court last week after he was arrested and charged for allegedly protesting against the use of an Impala Car Rental vehicle in the abduction of Tawanda Muchehiwa, a student with the Midlands State University in July by some unidentified people.
The ZINASU leader has been detained at Harare Remand Prison since last week.
