Zimbabwe journalist Hopoewell Chin’ono released on bail

A court in Zimbabwe has released the journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono, on bail.

He had been in prison since July after being charged with inciting public violence for posting messages in support of a protest against corruption.

His incarceration drew widespread international criticism, especially after he was repeatedly denied bail.

Earlier the opposition leader behind the protest was also given bail.

Jacob Ngarivhume was ordered not to share any posts on social media.

The Zimbabwean government has accused the opposition of working with foreign countries to destabilise the country.
