"I have just seen Jestina Mukuro"

I have just been to the Harare Magistrates Court where Jestina and others were produced apparently to be charged with organising the training of youth/militia in Botswana to overthrow the government.

She is OK, I held her hand, she has her glasses and proper clothes…the magistrate said it is up to the HIgh Court to decide the matter as it is already before them, however the lawyers present told me the High Court should simply order their release.

We wait to see what happens, but the important thing is that Jestina is indeed alive and seemingly ok, and now the lawyers have access to her and others at Harare Remand Prison.
