Councillor Decent Chikunya of Bikita Ward 17 appeared in the Masvingo Magistrates’ Court on Monday for contravening Public Order and Security Act (POSA) Amendment Number 18 of 2017 Chapter 11:17, ‘conveying a meeting without notifying the police or regulating authority’.
It is the State’s case that on March 18, Chikunya who is a MDC-T member, unlawfully convened a political meeting in Bikita East at Mukamba where meetings are often held.
It is on that same day Zanu PF supporters intended to hold a sanctioned meeting.
A Zanu PF member, Chipiwa Chipare, of Nerunhengo village, who is the complainant, reported the case to the police.
The police came but found MDC -T members dispersing from the venue which led to the arrest of Chikunya.
Magistrate Langton Ndokera postponed the case to May 29 for continuation of trial.
Fidelicy Nyamukondiwa represented the State.local
