JUST IN: MDC's Makomborero Haruzivishe Granted Bail
MDC Alliance NEC member and pro-democracy campaigner Makomborero Haruzivishe has been granted a ZWL$10 000 bail by the High Court.
He was being represented by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) and his lawyer, Mr Ncube.
Makomborero has been in prison since April serving a 14-month jail term after being convicted of inciting public violence after he had demonstrated with colleagues demanding the release of ZINASU president Takudzwa Ngadziore.
Speaking on the release of the former students’ union leader, Advocate Fadzayi Mahere a law lecturer at eh the University of Zimbabwe and MDC Alliance national spokesperson said:
Best news I’ve heard today. I’m so happy @MakomboreroH is free but I’m also disappointed that his liberty was unduly curtailed. Mako is innocent. It is not a crime to demand a better society.
His incarceration had been described by some human rights defenders and party colleagues as a blow to democracy.
