    July 27, 2011

    The Attorney General's office represented by Prosecutor, Mr. Manhiri continues to drag its feet in thebail application hearing for Cynthia Manjoro and 7other activists who are still in police custody 60 days after they were arrested on the 29th of May 2011 on accusations of killing a police officer in Glenview. The eight are facing charges of contravening Section 47 of the Criminal Law Reform and Codification Act.

    Prosecutor Manhiri requested the court to defer the case to tomorrow Thursday 28 July 2011 to allow his colleague Edmore Nyamazamba to argue the case. Efforts by defense lawyers, Jeremiah Bamu and Tawanda Zhuwarara for the hearing to be heard today were fruitless as Justice Samuel Kudya agreed to postpone the hearing


    13 Restoration of Human Rights (ROHR) activists were arrested today at the High Court for peacefully protesting against the continued incarceration of the eight Glenview residents whose bail hearing was supposed to be heard by Justice Samuel Kudya today. The peaceful demonstration demanded that the Glenview residents be released immediately and that the judiciary should exercise its duties in a non partisan manner.

    The names of the 13 activists who are currently detained at the Central Police Station are:

    Cosmas Ndira
    Kimberly Nyatanga
    Tungamirai Mazabani
    Trymore Nyatanga
    Barnabas Mwanaka
