Hilarious Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) follower Godfrey Karembera, better known as Madzibaba veShanduko has been granted $10 000 bail with conditions by a Harare magistrate.
The Guruve based Karembera was ordered to present himself to Guruve Police Station twice per week until his matter was finalised.
This followed his appearing in court to answer to charges of undermining police authority as defined in Section 177 of Criminal Code.
Karembera allegedly told police officers that they were being used and manipulated by VP Constantino Chiwenga and were “dogs who behave as if they are paid gold for salaries”.
In his submissions before Magistrate Barbara Mateko, human rights lawyer Douglas Coltart had told the court that the activist was over detained beyond 48 hours before being taken to court.
He also said Kerembera’s arrest and detention was illegal as he was severely tortured while in police custody.
Coltart is also argued that the activist must not be placed on remand.
The activist was arrested this past week in the Harare CBD.
