Chin’ono speaking to journalists at the court said the reason why he is fighting for reforms is to do away with laws like the one ZRP is using to “persecute” “dissident” voices like him, Mahere, and Sikhala.
The case will resume in the morning according to the publication:
Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono’s case has been rolled over to tomorrow, together with that of opposition cadre Job Sikhala. Chin’ono says it is an “open and shut case” the law being used is non-existent; unconstitutional. He said this is just “persecution” of dissenting voices. pic.twitter.com/yE27rMfWEz
