Pro-democracy activist and Tajamuka Spokesperson Comrade Promise Mkwananzi is set to appear again in court tomorrow Monday 11 July 2016.
He is facing trumped up charges of inciting public violence and attacking Choppies Supermarket which is owned by the country’s Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko.
He was forced to spend his weekend in detention at Harare Remand Prison after he first appeared in court on Saturday and the Magistrate pretended to have fallen sick hence he could not preside on the case due to the unspecified illness.
We are convinced that this is a deliberate tactic on part of the regime to frustrate and intimidate us in our quest for a new Zimbabwe were corruption, poverty, human rights violations, unemployment, police brutality e.t.c will be a thing of the past.
As actors of the Tajamuka/Sesjikile Campaign, we would like to take this opportunity to state categorically that we are not intimidated at all by these illegal arrests. We will remain clear on our idea to see a better and prosperous future of Zimbabwe. Yes we might be arrested like what has been happening in the past weeks but the idea will not be arrested and cannot be destroyed because its time has come.
We call upon all Zimbabweans to take part in this campaign as we are about to write a new story of our nation… Those who are in and around Harare are kindly invited to attend in solidarity tomorrow at Rotten Row Magistrate Court.
