Mugwagwa ruled that the State failed to prove its case beyond reasonable ground that indeed on October 8, the ZCTU informed the Officer Commanding Harare Central Police District that they intended to conduct a peaceful demonstration in the CBD.

Allegations were that the police had turned down the request.

The ZCTU challenged the ban by the police in court but lost. It defied the ban and carried out an unlawful demonstration along Jason Moyo Avenue in Harare.

They were holding placards insulting President Mnangagwa. Police efforts to dissuade them from carrying out the illegal demonstration failed leading to their arrest, the allegations read.

A Harare magistrate, Rumbidzai Mugwagwa however found them not guilty and acquitted them of all charges at the close of the State’s case. Zim Morning Post
