Activist in Court for Undermining Mugabe

Former MDC-T councillor arraigned in court on charges of undermining the office of the president by uttering derogatory words

The backlash over President Robert Mugabe's near-fall in India in October has claimed its first scalp after former Chinhoyi MDC-T councillor, Tendai Musonza, was arraigned in court on charges of undermining the office of the president by uttering derogatory words.

It is the State case that on 29 October 2015, at Chonde barbershop in Chinhoyi, Musonza upon meeting a ZANU-PF activist wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the President's face shouted, ‘you people, we cannot continue to be ruled by a 91-year-old man that continues to fall on his own’.

Mugabe's spokesman George Charamba was quoted in the State-run The Herald newspaper as saying that Mugabe’s struggle to climb a ramp was a ‘very minor incident’.
