PASTOR Evan Mawarire was Sunday afternoon charged with subverting a constitutional government before being locked up indefinitely.

The charges emanated from a video the cleric circulated on Saturday on social media over Zimbabwe's worsening economic crisis.

#ThisFlag's Mawarire also urged the police not to arrest him, saying he had the constitutional right to comment on the economic crisis.

Mawarire' lawyer Harrison Nkomo of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights told that on Monday he was going to approach the High Court and appeal against his client's indefinite detention.

"They have locked him up and have not given us a date to appear before the court and tomorrow I am going with him to the High court where we would make an appeal," said Nkomo.

Mawarire was arrested during a sermon by armed police officers on Sunday.
