#TAJAMUKA/Sesijikile leader Promise Mkwananzi and his co-accused, Bruce Usviso, were yesterday further remanded to October 20 when they appeared at the Harare Magistrates’ Court facing public violence charges.

BY DESMOND CHINGARANDE

Their routine remand appearance before magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro yesterday came following their release on bail by High Court judge Justice Happias Zhou after spending several weeks in remand prison as the lower courts classified them as unsuitable candidates for bail.

Mkwananzi was released on $100 bail while Usviso was released on $50 bail. As part of their bail conditions, the activists were ordered to surrender their passports, report once a week at the Harare Central Police Station Law and Order section, reside at their given addresses and not to interfere with State witnesses. The State alleges that Mkwananzi, Usviso and their other alleged accomplices incited public violence and destroyed properties during a mass demonstration that rocked Harare on August 24. Two vehicles belonging to the police and Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation were allegedly torched during the demonstrations.

The two are being represented by Tonderai Bhatasara.
