Female CCC Members Fondled In Prison Vehicle - Lawyers

Female CCC Members Fondled In Prison Vehicle - Lawyers

Lawyers representing 25 members of the opposition CCC who were arrested last week in Harare’s Budiriro suburb said their female clients were molested en route to the Harare magistrates court.

The lawyers accused the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) wardens of transporting female prisoners in the same van with male prisoners who are not CCC members, which resulted in the females being fondled along the way.

The lawyers, Wilbert Mandinde, Kudzai Kadzere and Chris Mhike also alleged that one of the accused persons contracted coronavirus while in prison and has been isolated for 10 days.

Harare magistrate Yeukai Dzuda ordered the State to investigate the abuse and bring the report to court by Friday.

The CCC members were arrested for allegedly holding a political gathering in Harare without police clearance.

Allegations are that on 14 January 2023, the accused persons responded to an invitation for a meeting at Budiriro MP Costa Machingauta’s house.

Prosecutors submitted that ZRP Budiriro received a tip-off that the accused were gathered illegally and went to investigate. 

Upon arrival at the scene of the crime, the police observed that the accused’s conduct was disturbing the peace of a section of members of the public.

The police ordered the accused persons to disperse, but they resisted leading to their arrest. The accused had no lawful excuse to act in the manner they did.

well if they were fondled as alleged by male prisoners the issue is not political because offenders are apolitical but the allegations are difficult to substantiate because fondling does not leave any fingerprints
maybe they should ensure that separate vehicles are used to transport female and male prisoners next time

@Vepano pano that's exactly the lawyer's point that female and male prisoners were not supposed to be transported in one vehicle The issue is indeed political because the prison officers must have done that deliberately and they knew that something like that(violation of the women) would happen Even the law says male and female prisoners should always be kept separately

obviously this issue was blown out of proportion by these political thugs from CCC
they want the international community to vilify gvt by using their gender as a smokescreen to cover their illegal activities

the CCC activist who has been isolated proves that we have a working system here in Zimbabwe and moreover he probably brought the coronavirus from outside the prison since we do not have an outbreak in the prison cells prior to his incarceration

"gathered illegally".... and what does the zimbabwe constitution have to say about this?????
Our judges and magistrates need to abide by the country's constitution that protect the rights of the people.

remember that it was a political gathering at a private residence and they did not comply with the law
this wasn't be a private has to do with discretion of what constitutes a private gathering from a private one
25 people is a sizeable crowd before we factor in those who fled and those I saw jumping over the precast wall to evade arrest.
they should make me state witness mhani these criminal elements must be brought to book

Next thing ZANU will want from CCC citizens is police clearance kana mwana waJob Sikhala aakuroorwa.
