Media violations and victories

Background

The case arises from an article that was written by journalist Mlondolozi Ndlovu on 21 August 2015 headlined:  Pressure on Mugabe as another demonstration is set for Harare…New party declares war on Mugabe. The story had been written from a press statement by Owen Kachata.

Kachata was later arrested together with Borman Ngwenya, Solomon Makumbe and Silas Pfupa while in possession of Molotov cocktails that they allegedly wanted to use to bomb Alpha Omega Dairies, Gushungo Estates, owned by President Robert Mugabe and his family.
