Writer Tsitsi Dangarembgwa’s application for discharge on charges of inciting public violence has been dismissed.
Harare magistrate Babra Mateko ruled Thursday that Dangarembgwa has a case to answer since it was not in dispute that she was indeed seen holding placards with inciting material.
Commenting after the ruling, the writer said; “The outcome is not the outcome that l had hoped for; l had hoped for a discharge of the case.
“Zimbabweans have the right to demonstrate and, if an issue arise and l feel it needs demonstrating, l will surely do it again.
“I am a writer which is wonderful and everything that happens to me is a resource for my work.
“l am not disappointed that there is more support by the citizens, they are struggling on their daily basis of life.”
