Musengezi Who Challenged Mnangagwa's Ascendancy To Power Granted Bail

Musengezi Who Challenged Mnangagwa's Ascendancy To Power Granted Bail

ZANU PF activist Sybeth Musengezi who challenged president Emmerson Mnangagwa’s legitimacy in court was granted ZW$30 000 bail on Friday after more than a week in custody.

Musengezi was arrested and detained last week accused of using a false address to attain ZANU PF membership in 2012.

His lawyers said this was an attempt by Mnangagwa to strip him of his ZANU PF membership so that he has no legal standing to pursue his court action.

Harare magistrate Yeukai Dzuda said it appeared to him that Musengezi had not supplied “fictitious” addresses to secure ZANU PF membership but it was state informants who did so. He added that Musengezi was eligible for ZANU PF membership.

ZimLive cites Musengezi’s lawyer Douglas Coltart as saying that the bail ruling exposed the state’s cooked-up allegations bent on victimising his client for challenging Mnangagwa’s “unconstitutional” ascendancy to power.  Said Coltart:

The magistrate’s finding that Musengezi was eligible for ZANU PF membership really underscores how baseless these charges are because if he was eligible then he could not have defrauded ZANU PF by becoming a member.

It really demonstrates that this case is all about persecuting him for being someone who had a different view within the party and who spoke up and took action against unconstitutional practices within the party.

Musengezi filed a court application last year challenging Mnangagwa’s ascension to ZANU PF leadership following the ouster of the late former President Robert Gabriel Mugabe

Mnangagwa’s legal team demanded that the charges be dropped in letters to his lawyers.

Musengezi later revealed that he had received death threats, which he believes were part of a coercive effort to get him to drop his court application.

Musengezi’s court application has worsened factionalism within ZANU PF amid reports that he is being sent by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Nyaya iya yaakuzonakidza manje. Now that Musengezi's bona fides are almost proven, the slippery eel has been caught in a net, so the Illegitimate rise of La Coste is under scrutiny.

Musengezi is just being sacrificed on the political alter for challenging the "crocodile's" ascendancy to power.The naked truth of the matter is that Munangagwa was fired from Zanupf party by Mugabe and he ran out of the country only to be handed over the presidency by komuredhi the now vhaisi purezidhendi and minisita of herothi Mista Conistindeno Chiwenga . Otherwise Garwe haritorina kadhi remusangano🤣🤣

Am I dreaming. During the recent by-elections I heard ZEC spokesman say that it was not illegal for 87 potential voters to register to vote using one non existent street number. Citizens should take ZEC to court for allowing the 87 or so voters to defraud them with Zecs permission.

While I do not dispute that Musengezi used false address in the application of ZANU PF membership, I want to say that the way this case is being deakt with stinks corruption. Why was Nusengezi detained for a week awaiting bail ? Why was Nusengezi arrested before his case in which he is the plentiff was heard and finalised? Why was the bail so huge? Are these not the works of a captured judiciary ?
