Evan Mawarire trial set for 25 September


The trial of Evan Mawarire, who is accused of subverting a constitutionally elected government, has been set for 25 September.

Mawarire, through his social media outfit, #ThisFlag,is accused of inciting Zimbabweans to revolt against the government in July last year.

Mawarire who skipped the country last year was arrested on his return in February.

He says the problems Zimbabwe is currently facing are bigger than Mugabe.

“He is a figurehead of a system,” he told NewZimbabwe.Com in February.

“I don’t want to take away from the fact that the individual had a role to play in these challenges, but there is a system of corruption and abuse. He could die tomorrow or next week, and then what?”
