Baba Jukwa suspect remanded in custody to 7 July


Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudakwashe Kudzayi has been remanded in custody to July 7 pending his bail application at the High Court.

Kudzayi (28) was arrested last week and charged with attempting to subvert a constitutionally elected government or, alternatively, attempting to commit an act of insurgency, banditry, sabotage or terrorism by using the Baba Jukwa page to whip up emotions against Zanu PF and incite Zimbabweans to rebel if the party “stole” the July 31 2013 elections.

The blog went viral at the height of the election campaign last year, making controversial exposés of alleged political plots by Zanu PF officials and State security agents.

Kudzayi, who was appointed editor in April this year, first appeared in court on Saturday and was remanded in custody to today for bail application before provincial magistrate Vakayi Chikwekwe.
