Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) member, Godfrey Karembera, better known as Madzibaba VeShanduko, was on Wednesday granted $10 000 bail by a Harare magistrate.
CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere said Karembera remains hospitalised as he recovers from the injuries he sustained when tortured by members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP).
Karembera was brutally assaulted while in custody at Harare Central Police Station on 17 March after he was arrested in central Harare on the same day.
ZRP justified the assault of Karembera in a statement that he was “engaging in unsanctioned political activities in the Harare Central District”.
His assault and torture came after Vice President, Constantino Chiwenga, on 26 February this year, threatened the opposition CCC saying the ruling ZANU-PF party would “crush the party like lice”.
