The High Court on Wednesday ended the three-week detention of Tinashe Jonas, leader of Ideal Zimbabwe party.

Jonas who was represented by members of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights was freed by the High Court after granting him $500 bail.

Jonas had been in prison since 12 March after he was detained for undermining the authority of or insulting President Mnangagwa

It is alleged that he made the following statements regarding President Mnangagwa, "Mnangagwa has killed thirty thousand people. Why would people defend that maybe he could not kill maybe one or two people? It's on record. Mnangagwa can…can open a police case and then I can face him in court and prove to him that he is a killer.

"If he can cheat his advisor Christopher Mutsvangwa. Mnangagwa can have a child with his advisor's wife, that Monica Mutsvangwa, is in a five-star hotel. Mnangagwa is bankrolling his girlfriend who is the wife of his adviser.

"I want to warn Emmerson Mnangagwa and say I give you six months to resign and you and this bleaching moron Chiwenga should also resign in the next six months."

Jonas has invited President Mnangagwa to come and defend himself against the allegations.
