Artuz leader fights for freedom

 Artuz leader fights for freedom
Published: 25 June 2019 (71 Views)
A HARARE magistrate postponed handing down a verdict in the matter where the State sought bail revocation of Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (Artuz) leader Obert Masaraure.

Masaraure, who is on remand on subversion charges allegedly failed to report to Hwedza Police Station, hence his alleged failure to comply with bail conditions prompted the court to issue a warrant of arrest against him.

When he took the stand to explain himself, Masaraure said he reported to the police on June 14 but was informed that Form 126 where he was supposed to sign was with the officer-in-charge who was not around when he inquired about his whereabouts.

"I requested the police officer who attended to me to inform the officer-in-charge that I came to report but could not wait as I had a flight to catch. When I arrived in Nairobi, I received a phone call from the officer-in-charge. You can verify this with Econet because my phone was on roaming. He informed me that there were security agents that were looking for me," he said.

Masaraure told the court that when he returned on June 20, he reported to Hwedza Police Station before he was arrested.
