    Eight Glenview residents who have been in remand prison since the start of last month on murder charges will remain locked up after a Judge vetoed their bail application.

    High Court Judge Justice Tendai Uchena on Friday 1 July 2011 threw out a bail application filed by Glenview Ward 32 councillor Tungamirai Madzokere, human rights activist Cynthia Manjoro, Rebecca Mafikeni, Phenias Nhatarikwa, Lazarus Maengahama, Stanford Maengahama, Yvonne Musarurwa and Stanford Mangwiro.

    Justice Uchena said the eight could flee if freed on bail.

    The Judge agreed to free 12 others facing the same charge, including former Glenview councillor Last Maengahama, Gabriel Shumba, Stefani Takaidzwa, Linda Musiyamhanje, Tafadzwa Billiat, Simon Mudimu, Dube Zwelibanze, Simon Mapanzure, Edwin Muingiri, Augustine Tengenyika, Francis Vambai, Nyamadzawo Gapara.

    The 12 should report three times a week to the police, continue residing at their given addresses and surrender their travel documents as part of stringent bail conditions.

    Maengahama was ordered to pay $1 000 while the rest of the residents were asked to deposit $300.

    The Glenview residents were arrested recently and charged with contravening Section 47 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23 for allegedly murdering Inspector Petros Mutedza at a bar in Glen View.
