After a day a second day in detained Pastor and Activist Evan Mawarire we’re freed, in the evening after beeing charged with “subverting constitutional government and as defined in section 22(2) (a) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23”.
Today the day started with a Court who delayed and delayed time while protesters who came with peace, stand their ground and was not let into the premises and court-room, while 200 Human Rights Lawyers filled the place to offer their defense of Evan Mawarire and his case. As the state used yesterday to search his home and his church of evidence of the plot they we’re planting on him and also the case they had against the man, who happen to be the leader of a peaceful protest movement against the current ZANU-PF Government and their old-dictator Robert Mugabe. One Lawyer who got a name for fighting for Mawarire today we’re Harrison Nkomo who fought well for him all day!
“Evan Mawarire walked free! Thank you again Zimbabwe. We will not stop claiming our country back. ZBC will report on a flopped stay away, but the real story was one wrongfully accused man and people who wouldn’t let him disappear!! #ThisFlag” (ThisFlag Movement, 13.07.2016).
“After what has been regarded as the biggest protest to ever occur in Zimbabwe in over a decade, Pastor Evan Mawarire who was firstly charged with ‘inciting violence’ and later with treason has been set free and this has marked one of the most historic moments in Zimbabwe. Zimbabweans all over the world are celebrating and those at the court house present at the time were singing and praising God for setting the man behind the campaign is set free” (Zimbabwe – Newsday, 13.07.2016).
The positive is that the Charges that he gained yesterday we’re dropped. Though the courtesy of the state only happen after civilian disobedience and going against the man, who lead a peaceful protest against oppression and corrupt state. That proves the power of the people and their will for justice. This cannot be fad, something fading now, this has to continue if the people want a real change from the Zanu-PF regime under President Mugabe, as the MDC and Tsvangirai failed after a popular uprising and a recharged belief in peaceful transition through the ballot.
The Zimbabweans have showed heart today. Be proud. You should be. Now use this positive reinforcement for an beginning of new era and change of state of affairs. Use this moment as a stepping stone towards the end of the oppressor, who have deleted and depleted the resources, instead they have feed the elite and not the people! Peace.

Corporation Number 2:
Evan Mawarire arriving at police station this morning. Later after this he was arrested by the Police in Zimbabwe. After the arrest the Police have gone to his offices and searched the place for evidence. What is more horrible and shows the state of impunity, if it is true! That the Police have searched the church of the Pastor, while he is detained at the CID.
As this is the charge:
“Pastor Evan Mawarire charged with section 36 for inciting public violence and disturbing peace” (The Hearald, 12.07.2016).
So the Zanu-PF contines with their oppressive behaviour they are famous for. Now they have taken a Pastor, who happens to be Activist for Peaceful Demonstrations where they questioning the ruling regime and their President; as any citizen should do! So if it is to demonstrate against a government who feeds itself and their loyal cronies, while leaving the citizens is a crime; than the jails of Zimbabwe should be built bigger and by my estimation on funds from China, by Chinese Contrators too. That is for another day, as the faild Zanu-PF government continues to tornment and oppress their own. The Pastor Evan Mawarire is just a symbol of the failed state and their inactivity. Peace.
“12 July 2016 – Listen to the full interview with Zimbabwean activist Pastor Evan Mawarire who is leading the #ThisFlag movement and calling for an end to corruption and police brutality. Mawarire reported to Zimbabwe police authorities on Tuesday” (eNCA, 2016)
“Zimbabwe President, Robert Mugabe has lashed out at the opposition parties including his former vice president. Mugabe says his detractors are working with white South Africans to oust his government. He told thousands of party supporters to be wary of the enemy. President Mugabe was speaking to thousands of party supporters, the first time he has done so following a series of strikes and unrest over the worsening economy” (SABC Digital, 2016)
