Zimbabwe court grants pastor activist bail


A Zimbabwe High Court has granted bail to activist pastor Evan Mawarire who was arrested last week and charged with subversion amid violent anti-government protests. The activist is one of hundreds who are facing trial for their roles in the protests that took place during a social shutdown called by the main trade union congress, ZCTU.

Mawarire has in the last few years been a constant figure in anti-government protests. He was routinely arrested during the Mugabe regime for subversion and disrespecting the flag. Charges against him were dropped after Mugabe got ousted in November 2017.

He ran for public office during the 2018 elections but lost.
