Baba Jukwa trial remanded to September


TWO suspects linked to the controversial Baba Jukwa Facebook page, Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi and his elder brother Philip, were yesterday further remanded to September 1 after the State indicated that it was not yet ready to place them on trial.


The brothers, who are out of custody on $5 200 bail each, were arrested in June on charges of attempted terrorism, insurgency and banditry.

They are suspected to be the brains behind the faceless social media blog which dished out Zanu PF secrets and exposed scandals by top ruling party politicians, especially towards last year’s harmonised elections.

Their lawyer Everson Chatambudza said if by September 1 the State was not yet ready for trial, he would apply for refusal of further remand.

The case, which has also sucked in Cabinet ministers Jonathan Moyo and Saviour Kasukuwere, has been widely publicised, with police saying they were still keen to interview some suspects based in the United Kingdom and South Africa.
