'Mamombe Possibly First Woman Since Mbuya Nehanda To Face Treason Charges'
Harare West MP Joanna Mamombe was arrested on Saturday while she was in Nyanga for Parliament business. According to a political analyst, Dr Pedzisai Ruhanya, Mamombe could possibly be the first woman in Zimbabwe to face treason charges since Mbuya Nehanda in 1896/97 at the end of the First Chimurenga/Umvukela. Said Ruhanya:
After the hanging of Nehanda on treason charges by Rhodes’ Pioneer Column, Harare West MP Joana Ruvimbo Mamombe could possibly be the first woman in contemporary politics to be charged with treason! Regime breaking history for autocratic reasons, what a bogus and dubious regime!
A Harare magistrate on Tuesday ruled that Mamombe has a case to answer. Her lawyers have since approached the High for a bail application.
