The five MDC-T members who are part of the 31 activists facing charges of murder were today denied bail at the High Court.

The five were making a fresh bail application before the trial judge, Justice Chinembiri Bhunu. The 31 are jointly charged for murdering a police officer, Petros Mutedza in Glen View, Harare in May 2011.

They have been in remand prison since then.  

Those denied bail are; Last Maengahama, an MDC national executive member, Glen View councillor, Tungamirai Madzokere, Yvonne Musarurwa and Rebecca Mafukeni. They were denied bail on allegations that they were a flight risk.

The trial will resume on 25 February.

However, the MDC-T maintains that its five members should be released immediately as they are facing false murder charges.

The MDC-T's position is that the trial and continued incarceration of the five and the rest of those accused is not prosecution but political persecution simply because they are fighters for real change and a better Zimbabwe.
