Lynda Masarira further remanded: Update, Pictures & Video
By John Cassim
The Mbare Magistrates Court today further remanded Lynda Tsungie Masarira in custody to the 25th of August for her trial on charges of allegedly throwing stones and burning vending stalls during protests in Zimbabwe last month.
While others have been released on bail she remains locked up.
Meanwhile the state failed to avail a transcript of the court record for use by the Defence to apply for bail at the High Court.
Lynda looked visibly sick when she appeared in court today because she is allegedly being denied access to medication and it was evident with swollen hands.
Surprisingly the lawyer Kudzai Eric Kadzere was not aware of Linda’s state.
Prominent lawyer and politician Jacob Mafume said he is likely going to assist the Defence as they seek Lynda’s release from remand prison where she has been for close to a month.
Masarira was arrested together with 10 others in Mufakose for allegedly throwing stones and burning vendor stalls during protests in Zimbabwe last month. Nehanda Radio
