Allan Moyo's bail appeal was postponed to Friday 22 January 2021 by High Court Judge Justice Davison Foroma.

During the application for postponement, the state requested more time to enable it to respond to the appeal.

Moyo, a University of Zimbabwe (UZ) student, who was arrested on December 7 and charged with inciting people to commit public violence.

His arrest came after he allegedly called for a revolt against President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government.

Police on December 7 arrested Moyo (23) and charged him with incitement to commit public violence.

Moyo has since denied the charge and he is seeking bail pending trial.

The state alleged that Moyo, on July 3, incited some commuters at Copacabana bus terminus in Harare by telling them that the time to stage a revolt against President Mnangagwa's administration in Zimbabwe was conducive.

He allegedly said this was because Mnangagwa had failed the people of Zimbabwe.

The court heard that Moyo told commuters that President Mnangagwa's government was not capable of presiding over the country's affairs as it has caused the suffering of citizens.

This led to his arrest.
