Rebecca Musarurwa, one of the eight MDC members in remand prison today
collapsed in court at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts and had to be rushed to
hospital. The reasons of her collapsing and her current condition are still
unknown.

When she was arrested by the police in May, she was seriously assaulted by
the police while in custody at Harare Central Police Station.

Musarurwa who has been in remand prison for over five months, is part of 28
MDC activists who are facing trumped-up charges of murdering a policeman in
Glen View, Harare in May.

The 28 activists were in court for the second day since yesterday for a
ruling after applying for refusal of further remand.

Due to Musarurwa’s health, Magistrate Donald Ndirowei was forced to postpone
the ruling to tomorrow, Friday.

Among those in remand prison is Solomon Madzore, the MDC Youth Assembly
chairperson who was denied bail at a separate ruling at the High Court today
after Justice Hlekani Mwayera ruled that he was a flight risk.

Others in remand prison are; Councillor Tungamirai Madzokere of Ward 32 Glen
View, Rebecca Mafikeni, brothers Lazarus and Stanford Maengahama, Phineas
Nhatarikwa and Stanford Mangwiro.
