CCC spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere was yesterday warned to desist from taking pictures and posting them on social media during court sessions.

This came after she took pictures of a prosecutor handling her matter and posted on social media during her trial on communicating falsehoods prejudicial to the State.

Mahere was warned by Harare regional magistrate, Mr Tinei Manwere, after the prosecution team of Mr Oscar Madhume and Mrs Netsai Mushayabasa, complained of her conduct.

Mahere was said to have taken a picture of Mrs Mushayabasa when she was putting across charges to her and posted it on social media.

Mr Madhume told the court that the social media post attracted comments that dented the integrity of the prosecution and their personalities.

Mahere acknowledged taking the picture and posting it saying she only captured the courtroom and hinted that her trial had opened.

Her charges arose after she tweeted that a police officer had beaten to death a baby strapped to her mother with ban in Harare.
