Africa-Press – Zimbabwe. Three CCC members who were arrested on Wednesday in connection with the violence that rocked Nyatsime last week have been denied bail.
Precious Jeche (41), Misheck Guzha (62) and Odius Makoma (42) appeared before Harare Magistrate Dennis Mangosi on Thursday facing charges of public violence.
The magistrate ruled that the trio is likely to skip bail, hence it is risky to free them on bail pending trial.
The CCC members are accused of destroying houses and shops and also setting on fire a the house of the ZANU PF Chairperson for the Nyatsime area.
They are also accused of looting groceries and electrical gadgets at Chibhanguza Shopping Centre.
The value of the destroyed property is estimated at ZWL$5.8 million.
The violence erupted following the brutal murder of CCC activist Moreblessing by an alleged ZANU supporter, Pius Mukandi, alias Jamba on 24 May 2022.
