ZRP Is reportedly charging Hopewell Chin’ono using a law that in another case in 2014 was struck off from the statute by the Constitutional Court, Law fundi Alex Magaisa has said.
PoliceZimbabwe are charging journalist Hopewell Chin’ono @daddyhope under a provision that was struck off from the statute by the Constitutional Court in 2014. In the Chimakure case, the court held that s. 31(a)(iii) of the Criminal Code was VOID.
Jonathan Moyo Tw
The regime will probably say it was declared void under the old Constitution. But this would be a silly argument. Once the provision was struck off, it no longer exists. The only way it would exist is if the legislature re-enacted it. None of that happened. There’s NO offence!
It’s another demonstration of the fact that it’s political persecution packaged as a prosecution. How do the police snd prosecutors bring a charge under a non-existent law? It’s stupid, embarrassing and unprofessional but this is what happens in an authoritarian regime.
Solidworks student edition. Chin’ono who was arrested for the third time in 6 months was picked up at his home yesterday and he was charged with tweeted false reports after he commented on a viral story of ZRP officers allegedly fatally striking a baby strapped on its mother’s back.

Alex Magaisa to MDC Alliance: Don’t boycott by-elections. Magaisa who is the former Chief of Staff in the office of the late former Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai said the party should actually work on strengthening its structures. Below is his Twitter thread.
United Kingdom-based law lecturer, Alex Magaisasaid the opposition MDC Alliance should not boycott by-elections saying they would be doing what their opponents, the ruling ZANU PF and their rivals, MDC-T, would want them to do.
If there’s a phrase that must not be entertained by the MDC Alliance right now, it is the phrase “boycott by-elections”. Not when the opponents are doing everything to take you out of political spaces. Boycott is exactly what they want you to do; it guarantees an easy ride.
You might boycott when you have leverage, as when Morgan withdrew from the violent & farcical presidential run-off election in 2008. The costs of participating were higher than the costs of boycotting. Morgan had won the 1st round. Mugabe running alone afterwards was a sham
The opponent must know that there is a price to pay if you boycott. There is no price to pay for ZANU–PF or MDC-T if the MDC Alliance boycotts by-elections. In fact, the opposite is true: they have everything to gain, with the strongest party abandoning its strongholds.
The MDC Alliance needs to rejuvenate its base. It needs to be seen fighting.
For a year now supporters have watched helplessly their party conceding ground without a fight. Elections are the space where they can have a say & they get news of their party threatening boycott?🙆🏾♀️
The leadership should be bold bullish & uncompromising. What’s in a name? The most urgent issue is not the name but re-building an institution that has been deliberately & purposefully shelled over the past year. Let them stop you but don’t boycott – it would be catastrophic.
