FORMER Zanu PF youth league political commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu arrested on allegations of inciting public violence and attempting to unseat President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government has been freed on bail by high court judge Davison Foroma.
In granting bail justice Foroma went after magistrate Ngoni Nduna saying he had failed to substantiate claims that Tsenengamu was a flight risk and no evidence was provided by the state that his life was in danger.
“The magistrate did not show how locking him up would make him safe,’’ ruled justice Foroma
Justice Foroma imposed reporting conditions on top of $10 000 bail payment, he ordered Tsenengamu to surrender his passport to the clerk of Harare Magistrate Court, reside at his given address and report twice a week at Waterfalls Police station.
The former youth league kingpin was dumped from his party after he challenged senior party officials of feeding their bellies with corruptly acquired wealth.
Since being kicked out of Zanu PF, Tsenengamu has been pushing an anti-corruption crusade and had joined hands with civil society and other young Zimbabweans to push for an end to corruption.
The state accuses, Tsenengamu is accused of inciting violence ahead of 31 July mass demonstration planned by the opposition and thwarted by the security forces.
Already government has arrested Job Sikhala, Jacob Ngarivhume, and Hopewell Chin’ono in custody.
