In court today the defence for Munyaradzi Gwisai +5 argued for a fine rather than a custodial sentence. The fine can be up to $2,000 each – lawyer argued for $500 each. The prison term can be up to 10 years. The sentence to be handed down tomorrow afternoon.
Since the Magistrate said yesterday, in handing down the guilty verdict, “I see no iota of evidence that any Zimbabwean ever contemplated a Tunisian and Egyptian revolution,” let’s hope reason prevails on him at last, and the convicted six are sentenced only to a fine.
