Tsenengamu bail ruling postponed

Former Zanu PF Mashonaland Central youth chairperson, who is now EEFZ leader Godfrey Tsenengamu will spend another night in custody after Harare regional magistrate Mr Ngoni Nduna said he was yet to complete his bail ruling.

Mr Nduna said he should be done by tomorrow morning and Tsenengamu will sleep in custody again tonight.

Tsenengamu handed himself to the police on Friday ending close to 3 months in hiding after ZRP published a statement that said they wanted to interview him and 14 other activists in July just before the 31st of July’s planned protests.

Tsenengamu initially appeared in court on Saturday on incitement to commit public violence with an alternative charge of incitement to participate in a public gathering with intend to commit public
violence.

Tsenengamu was among 14 political activists, including MDC-Alliance deputy chair Job Sikhala and Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) president Obert Masaraure, who were on the police wanted list for inciting public violence.

The state while opposing Tsenengamu’s bail bid on Saturday said him being in custody was for his own safety.
