“Mugabe must go” Pastor charged with criminal nuisance after chaining himself in protest

Remnant Church leader, Pastor Patrick Phillip Mugadza, who tied himself by the waist using a chain to steel rails that surround Africa Unity Square in Harare in protest, appeared in court yesterday charged with criminal nuisance.

He appeared before Mrs Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro, who remanded him out of custody on free bail and is expected back in court on December 6. His lawyer Gift Mutisi unsuccessfully challenged his placement on remand arguing that his arrest and detention were unlawful. Mutisi also argued that his client was assaulted and was not advised of the charge he was facing on time, thereby infringing on his rights.

However, Mrs Guwuriro threw away the application after the State proved that his application lacked merit.
