A MAN from Zimunya in Manicaland who allegedly disrupted a Zanu-PF meeting and publicly told the gathering that President Robert Mugabe was about to die was dragged before Mutare magistrates courts on Monday.

Samson Jackson, 35, appeared before Mutare magistrate Sekai Chiwundura facing charges of contravening section 44 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23:Disrupting a public gathering.

Jackson denied the charges and was remanded to April 2 on a $30 bail.

Prosecutor Donald Mudadirwa told the court that last week, Jackson went to site in Zimunya where Zanu PF supporters were holding a meeting and started insulting the gathering.

The court was told that he started shouting that, “Zanu-PF is a rotten party please leave it; why do you waste your time. Mugabe is about to die so why do waste your time following his party?”

Terrence Zimunya, a Zanu-PF security official, reportedly approached Jackson and asked him to leave but he continued with his insults.

This incensed party members who called the police leading to Jackson’s arrest.

  1. Just the name -Samson Jackso! – suggest mischief. I wish we could have such laws in Zambia to curb the ill-wishers of our president
