Anti-Mugabe Zanu PF youth further detained

FORMER Zanu PF youth chairperson for Mashonaland Central Godfrey Tsenengamu, on fresh allegations of plotting coup against President Robert, was Thursday dragged to court and was further detained in police custody.

Tsenengamu is yet to be formerly charged but according to the investigating officer, John Peter Mudyirwa, he is accused of trying to subvert a constitutionally elected government.

Magistrate Barbra Chimboza was expected to place him on remand this Friday.

Requesting further detention, Mudyirwa told court that they feared that if he was released he would destroy the evidence linking him to the crime.

Tsenengamu’s lawyer, however, said it was lame for the state to request for further detention since he is facing a third schedule offence.

“He should have simply been put on remand. There is no way he would go home today because he has to apply for bail at the High Court,” said the lawyer.

According to prosecutors, between March and May this year Tsenengamu held press conferences in which he urged Mugabe to step down.

He allegedly said if Mugabe chucks out his preferred president Emmerson Mnangagwa he would be in trouble.

“Munenge mairasa,” he was quoted saying.

Tsenengamu has a pending similar case before the same court.
