BREAKING: Court frees 'Baba Jukwa'
He was represented by Obey Shava of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights.
"Acquitted and now a free man. Magistrate described umbrella charges as vague and embarrassing. Now working on a lawsuit against the errant ZNA member and his ZRP accomplices." Kudzayi said after being freed.
Kudzayi was arrested in February after police stopped his vehicle at a roadblock and found a camouflage umbrella.
He rose to fame in 2014 after he was arrested and accused of running the shadowy Baba Jukwa Facebook page that exposed ZANU PF internal fights.
He was later acquitted of the charges and dismissed from his job at Zimpapers.
