student leader, Welcome Zimuto and five civic society activists
appeared before a Harare Regional Magistrate, today the 19th of
October facing charges
of conspiracy to commit public violence as defined in section

Solidarity Trust continues to support student victims of human rights
violations by lending its voice to calls for reforms in the justice
system for most of the cases involving students have collapsed due
to lack of evidence, a clear sign of bias from partisan prosecutors.
The continued dragging of these students in and out of court has
a negative impact on their learning hence the need to see justice
being delivered in time as soon as possible.
