The judgement for MDC Alliance activist Paddington Japajapa who is being charged with incitement to commit public violence has been set for May 17.

Allegations against Japajapa are that on July 31 at Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Command Centre, he unlawfully made communication to induce political violence at a press statement.

Japajapa allegedly said: “If people come to rallies it means they appreciate the candidate, you cannot follow a candidate whom you cannot vote for. … Zec must do the right thing by announcing the proper results. Failure to do this, as leader of a civic organisation I am going to call for chaos in the country…”

He was subsequently apprehended for the offence.
