Sunday Mail editor’s case referred to High Court


Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi’s case was today referred to the High Court after the magistrate Vakayi Chikwekwe said he did not have the jurisdiction to preside over his bail application. Kudzayi was arrested last Thursday and is facing several charges including undermining the authority of the president. He is also said to have been the main person behind Baba Jukwa, a facebook character that surfaced just before last year’s elections and claimed to be a disgruntled Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front member out to expose corruption in the party. His case continues to be intriguing. Baba Jukwa posted on his facebook yesterday while Kudzayi was in custody. A report in The Herald today said Kudzayi was part of the ZANU-PF election campaign last year. The report quoted party spokesman Rugare Gumbo as saying: “He was a member of the campaign team based at the ZANU-PF headquarters. I wouldn’t say I know him too well, I only saw him during the last days of the campaign.”
