Zanu PF Propagandist Kudzayi Remanded in Custody

Zanu PF hatchet man and now Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi was sent to the slammer for two weeks Monday after his handlers claimed he was a dangerous mole.
Harare magistrate Vakai Chikwekwe ordered Kudzayi detained until July 7 and said he could seek bail at the High Court.
“The magistrates court does not have jurisdiction to preside over third schedule offences,” Chikwekwe said. Third schedule offences include murder and robbery and can carry sentences of life imprisonment or death.
The court has charged Kudzayi with “subverting a constitutional government, or alternatively, attempting to commit an act of insurgency, banditry, sabotage or terrorism”. Kudzayi is also accused of publishing or communicating false statements prejudicial to the State or, alternatively, undermining the authority of or insulting the president”.
He also faces charges under the Firearms Act for allegedly failing to secure bullets found in his office and home.
The allegations against Kudzayi are that in April 2013, he used his brother Phillip’s mobile number, 0771 446 541, to register the Gmail e-mail account, ‘babajukwa2013@gmail.com’. He is accused of using the e-mail address to create a Facebook account called ‘Baba Jukwa’.
The state alleges Kudzayi used the account to recruit people to join illegal militias with the intention of overthrowing the government of president Robert Mugabe.
He is also alleged to have written in 2008 that Mugabe was a “dictator who commits gross human rights violations”. He also allegedly called the Zimbabwean leader a “tyrant” taking land from white owners and giving it to cronies.
