Opposition Transform Zimbabwe leader and the organizer of the 31 July scheduled demonstration, Jacob Ngarivhume has been denied bail.
Harare Magistrate, Trainos Utahwashe remanded Ngarivhume in custody to August 6 2020, facing a charge of incitement to commit public violence.
The court ruled that Ngarivhume incited public violence by planning the 31 July demonstrations thus if he is released he will proceed with his plans to hold the demonstration.
Ngarivhume was charged for addressing a press conference, inciting people to participate in a demonstration on 31 July demonstration despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Beatrce Mtetwa of the ZLHR had told the court that her client is a perfect candidate for bail.
