State accused of ‘deliberately frustrating’ Madzore case
By Alex Bell
The Secretary General of the MDC-T Youth Assembly, Promise Mkwanazi, has
accused the State of ‘deliberately frustrating’ the case against fellow
youth leader, Solomon Madzore.
Madzore was arrested more than a month ago in connection with the death of a
policeman in Glen View in May, a case that has seen the arrest of 27 other
MDC-T members. Madzore and seven others remain behind bars, while the others
were all granted bail in July.
Madzore was originally denied bail after repeated delays following his
arrest in October. His fresh bail application has now been postponed twice
this week, which Mkwananzi told SW Radio Africa is ‘deliberate’.
“We maintain that the arrest is political and has nothing to do with any
crime. We continue to condemn the errant behaviour and intransigency by ZANU
PF, and the political violence that continues to escalate with total
impunity,” Mkwananzi said.
Madzore’s bail application was postponed for a second time on Thursday after
High Court Justice Hlekani Mwayera said she needed time to go through the
The State on Wednesday failed to give its submission to the High Court,
forcing Justice Mwayera to postpone the matter. State prosecutor Edmore
Nyazamba then only managed to present his submissions on Thursday forcing
the judge to postpone the matter to Friday
