ZANU PF fostering injustice

By Paul Ndou

The ruling ZANU PF party is allegedly fostering injustice by making suspected criminals abscond courts on the pretext of campaigning for the party.

Last week the party pleaded with Harare magistrate Stanford Mambanje to relax their activist Innocent Tatenda Zanorehamba bail conditions.

The activist is facing a rape charge and his lawyer Tawanda Machinga wrote to the court requesting them to relax his bail conditions since he is on party business with the state not opposing bail and postponing the case to September 28.

A fortnight ago ZANU PF chairperson Kazembe Kazembe’s alleged thug Isheanesu “Chief Saunyama” Dzimbiti was supposed to be brought to court by the police on a case of threatening Freelance journalist Simbarashe Sithole with future violence but was not brought to court citing party business.

It raises eyebrows why ZANU PF is violating the law as opposition activists like Jacob Sikhala , Godfrey Sithole among others are being denied bail and rotting in prison on their pending cases while ruling party members are loitering without prosecution.
