Zinasu leader Takudzwa Ngadziore freed on $2000 bail

These students are today in detention for protesting against the continued detention of their leader

The Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) president Takudzwa Ngadziore was on Monday granted ZWL$2 000 bail by a Harare magistrate.

Apart from the bail money, Ngadziore was ordered to reside at the given address and to stay 100 metres away from a car rental company – Impala Car Rental Premises – in Harare.

Ngadziore was arrested last Thursday following protests outside the car rental firm’s premises and spent the weekend in prison after his bail hearing was postponed to Monday, September 14.

Harare magistrate Barbra Mateko on Friday last week said she was overwhelmed with work as she ordered the further detention of Ngadziore.

The 21-year-old Great Zimbabwe University Bachelor of Science in Politics and Administration student is accused of participating in a demonstration with intent to promote public violence, breach of peace or bigotry.

He is represented by Webster Jiti of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).

Unconfirmed reports say Ngadziore’s fellow student activists were arrested on Monday for waving placards demanding his arrest.
