Media Monitors Trial Deferred

Fadzai December, Molly Chimhanda and MMPZ’s Public Information Rights Forum Committee chairperson for Gwanda Gilbert Mabusa are also being charged under the notorious Public Order and Security Act (POSA) for failing to give notice of a meeting. They are also being charged in terms of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act for “participating in a gathering with the intent to promote public violence, breaches of peace or bigotry’.
 
The charges arise from a civic education meeting they facilitated in the town on November 24 last year.
 
Kossam Ncube represented the trio while Blessing Gundani appeared for the state.
 
Last week police here also charged (MMPZ) director Andy Moyse with undermining the office of the President.

The charge arose after detectives seized copies of compact discs and DVDs believed to contain material on the 1980s Gukurahundi atrocities in Matabeleland and Midlands.
