The main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) in Zimbabwe has condemned what it called the “unlawful arrest” of #ThisFlag movement Pastor Evan Mawarire on Tuesday, saying “the man has no criminal case to answer.”

Mawarire has been using social media to encourage people to protest against President Robert Mugabe’s government which he accused of failed leadership and incapacity to solve the current economic crisis.

Read the search warrant:

“Evan Mawarire is believed to be in possession of a stolen police helmet, button (sic) stick and other subversive material which he used to incite public violence on 6 July 2016 and others for intended use on 13 July 2016 for public violence (sic),” read the search warrant.

The document shows that Mawarire, who handed himself over to the police this morning in the company of a lawyer offered by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) , was charged under Section 187 (1) (a) as read with Section 36(1) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.

Mawarire’s arrest comes a day before another round of nationwide protests planned for Wednesday. Nehanda Radio

  • Mugabe lieutenant impregnates several high school girls, denies paternity, beats them up Posted by The Southern Daily on July 12, 2016 in News in Zimbabwe | Comments Off on Mugabe lieutenant impregnates several high school girls, denies paternity, beats them up Harare – Zanu PF praise singer, runner boy and business ally of Minister Supa Mandiwanzira, Cde Tafadzwa Musarara has been exposed as a sexual predator who prowls on young high school teenage girls, impregnating them in the process, then proceeding to deny paternity, refuse to pay for child support and use his financial and political muscle to outwit the courts. According to information recieved by the publication, Tafadzwa Musarara is at least involved in two bitter battles over child support with two different young women, whose futures he has ruined. In one case widely reported by the investigative wing of this publication, Tafadzwa Musarara impregnated then assaulted a lady by the name Cynthia Wozhele. He increased his hostility towards her after she approached the courts for reprieve. After losing a battle at the magistrates court, Musarara has now reportedly approached the High Courts, seeking to find a way of defeating the judgement passed by the lower court. The case is much similar to that of Loice Rutendo Taremeredzwa, another young lady now based in South Africa, whom he impregnated, physically abused, and pulled off another escape act on his responsibility. The girl, Loice Rutendo (19 at the time) gave birth to a young boy Zachary Tapiwa who turns 7 next month, and was named after Tafadzwa’s younger brother Tapiwa Musarara. It has since been established that at this present time, Musarara is dating another young girl fresh of high school, only identified as Kuda (18), who resides in Mt Pleasant, Harare. Incidentally, the girl is the exact same age as Tafadzwa’s first born son, Tafadzwa Junior (pictured below) who is also 18 years of age. The behaviour of Musarara has drawn massive outrage, as he is married, and has five children with his current wife. Three of them are boys, and twin girls. In the case of Teererai Musarara, the absolute look alike, Musarara is now challenging the Magistrates court, after Musarara played tricks to avoid a DNA test. As was the case with Munyaradzi Kereke, another Zanu PF MP who was jailed for 14 years for rape yesterday, Musarara is using his financial means to delay justice and frustrate the victims who are both powerless and unable to compete with his barrage of well paid lawyers. Tafadzwa Musarara is not new to controversy, or the habit of paying for delayed justice. He has been arraigned before the courts several times for refusing to pay for his travel expenses and business debts, often using legal tricks to avoid justice.

    The evidence they seek to find from this man’s home represents the sheer stupidity and intimidation tactics that Zanu and the courts wish to use. Manje your time is up! You are getting nothing.

  • Taryn Nefdt

    This is an argument for self-defense – if peacefully protesting is met with violence from ZANUPF in the form of abductions or their ZRP to make arrests based on trumped up charges – then Zimbabweans can arm themselves with whatever they need in order to defend themselves from the tyrannical violent regime.

    • yowe

  • Mutsawashe

    Kumwe kushaya so ka

  • I am no legal expert but by the same token could the ministers and president not be charged for inciting public violence by forcing the people of the country to become so discontent with their ineptitudes, corruption and general inability to make a resource rich country prosper…? Surely losing $18 Billion in a country financially starved is a reasonable reason to expect the public to become violent? And so could it not be said they incited this and hence should be charged…?

    • Oh my mistake. 15 Billion. But really – what’s 3 Billion right!? 😄

  • erizabheta

    Yawanikwa here ‘button stick’. Gore rino ana matibili vanotopa mama chete. Vazoita kupererwa manje
