In the struggle for Zimbabwe’s post-colonial political and economic freedom, no individuals have been cruelly punished by being jailed like Last Maengahama and Tungamirai Madzokere.
Last Maengahama and Tungamirai Madzokere were wrongly convicted in Zimbabwe, and sentenced to 20 years in prison by Justice Chinembiri Bhunu.
They spent 10 years in prison, 2 years in pre-trial detention and 8 years after conviction.
They were released on Friday evening after their lawyers, Beatrice Mtetwa and her Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights colleagues successfully appealed against the conviction and sentence.
They spent 10 years in prison for a crime that they didn’t commit.
With nothing to their names except their dignity, they have to restart their lives.
This Go-Fund is meant to raise money to assist them rebuild their lives.
Thank you for assisting with whatever you can.
The least we can do as citizens to show our appreciation for what they went through, is to help them start their new lives.
Nothing can replace 10 years in prison for a crime you didn’t commit, it is time cruelly taken away.
Let us give them a hug by assisting with the little we have.
