Former Mnangagwa Loyalist Denied Bail

Former Zimbabwe ruling party national youth political commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu who is facing charges of inciting public violence has been denied bail.

Tsenengamu who handed himself to the police law and order department is alleged to have incited Zimbabweans ahead of the foiled July 31 anti-government protests.

Harare Magistrate Ngoni Nduna said Tsenengamu needs protective custody because his life is in danger if released.

Tsenengamu had told police that strange men were following his family and harassing them demanding to know his whereabouts until he handed himself over to the police last Friday.

Magistrate Nduna agreed to the detention of Tsenengamu after prosecutors cited that it was not safe for the former Zanu Pf youth leader.

 Tsenengamu was expelled from the ruling Zanu PF after naming and shaming corrupt business people linked to the party.
