The Appeal Bail Hearing for Alan Moyo has been moved to Wednesday 17 February before Justice Chinamora at Harare High Court.
Moyo, a University of Zimbabwe (UZ) student, has been in detention for 71 days after he was arrested in December for allegedly calling for a revolt against President Mnangagwa’s government.
He has been bidding for freedom ever since he was arrested last year but the attempts have been hitting a brick wall.
High Court Judge Justice Davison Foroma once denied him bail citing that, Moyo did not suggest the nature of the error Magistrate Judith Taruvinga made when she denied him bail.
“For the reason that the applicant does not suggest the nature of the error complained about the court, should be spared the agony of determining the real cause of complaint by declaring at the outset that the ground of appeal is fatally defective,” Foroma said
“I found the applicant’s grounds of appeal to be fatally defective and accordingly dismiss the appeal.”
The state is alleging that Moyo, on July 3, incited some commuters at Copacabana Bus Terminus in Harare by telling them the time to stage a revolt against Mnangagwa’s administration was conducive because the president had failed the people of Zimbabwe.
Recently, the High Court also denied him bail for his third attempt saying that he, Moyo is a man of ‘no fixed aboard.’
