Former Zanu PF Mashonaland Central youth chairperson Godfrey Tsenengamu is scheduled to appear before the courts over incitement of violence after he urged the citizenry to participate in the foiled July 31 anti-corruption protests.
Tsenengamu is among 14 political activists, including MDC-Alliance vice-chair Job Sikhala who have been on the police’s list of wanted people over unspecified reasons.
He surrendered himself to the police this Friday morning at the CID Law and Order Section after a long period of evading the law enforcers.
Tsenengamu is in Police custody and will appear in court on October 10 to answer to charges of incitement to commit public violence charges as defined in Section 187(1) (a) as read in section 37 of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act, Chapter 09:23.
National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was still checking the details of the matter.
Tsenengamu was in March expelled from ZANU PF for violating the party’s code of conduct after he and fellow ZANU PF youth league officials named and shamed allegedly corrupt individuals within ZANU PF, government and the business community.
The named individuals who include former Mines minister Obert Mpofu were allegedly choking efforts to revive the country’s collapsed economy by engaging in underhand dealings.
