At the time or writing, Hopewell's lawyers were waiting to get a copy of Justice Chitapi's judgment to assist them in determining the next step to take.

Chin'ono and opposition politician Jacob Ngarivhume were arrested last month on charges of inciting public violence.

Police forced their way into Chin'ono's home in Harare's Chisipite suburb to arrest him.
