Bulawayo student activist further remanded
Students Solidarity Trust
November 01, 2010
A Bulawayo student
activist Patrick Danga appeared before a Harare magistrate today
facing charges under the Criminal
Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23 for defeating
the course of justice. The case was further remanded to the 17th
of November after the state prosecutor was unavailable because he
was on study leave. The matter has been in courts for more than
two years to date.
Solidarity Trust (SST) is concerned over the decay of the countries
justice delivery system. The courts have been jammed with a backlog
of cases with some dating back to 2005.The state has been postponing
and prolonging the prosecution of this matter on countless times
with reasons that range from prosecutors being off sick, to most
recent 'study leaves' for the state prosecutors. It
is the states responsibility to avail representatives from the state
regardless of study breaks and off days. The justice delivery system
must not be held to ransom by individuals pursuing personal agendas.
The Student Solidarity Trust appeals to relevant authorities to
set up proper administrative structures which will assist in the
smooth running of the courts, and deliver justice to the population
