8 Chinhoyi students get bail

Eight students from Chinhoyi University of Technology (CUT), including Zimbabwe National Students Union (Zinasu) vice secretary Faustina Madava have been released on free bail by Chinhoyi magistrate, Mr Felix Mawadze.

The eight MDC-Alliance sympathisers are expected back in court on July 14.

As part of their bail conditions, they must desist from any kind of protest, must not interfere with investigators and must stay at the university campus until they appear in court.

The other seven students are Lionel Shayahama, Shamiso Whide, Nicola Makasu, Melody Madalamete, Ignatious Nochombo, Norman Makamanzi and Brian Mushakwe.

Court papers show that the eight demonstrated inside the theatre lecture room, demanding the release of the MDC-Alliance trio of Joana Mamombe, Netsai Marowa and Cecilia Chimbiri, who were arrested on allegations of contravening the lockdown by participating in an illegal demonstration in Warren Park, Harare.

The students’ lawyer, Mr Kudzai Choga, told the court that the eight deserved to be given bail as they were pursuing their tertiary education.
