Zim activist Makomborero Haruzivishe jailed for 14 months

Makomborero Haruzivishe

A court in Zimbabwe has on Tuesday sentenced an opposition activist to 14 months in prison for inciting public violence. Defence lawyers said Makomborero Haruzivishe was convicted last week on circumstantial evidence, and the MDC Alliance claimed he’s a victim of political persecution.

There was a heavy police presence outside the Harare Magistrates Court as his supporters gathered ahead of the sentencing.

They used the Twitter hashtag #FreeMako and a video clip of a candlelit vigil held for him on Monday night was posted on Twitter.
