HARARE – Student activist Alan Moyo has been released on Z$10,000 bail by Judge Webster Chinamora of the Harare High Court after more than 70 days in detention.

Alan Moyo, 23, was charged with inciting public violence ahead of July 31 protests across the country.

Moyo, along with ZINASU leader Takudzwa Ngadziore, organized a protest on Copacabana in the capital, encouraging people to crack down on corrupt President Mnangagwa, former Health Minister Obadiah Moyo and Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube.

Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), through lawyer Obey Shava, led the process to secure the young activist’s freedom.

“We secured the release of Alan Moyo on $10,000 RTGS bail after he served over two months in prison.

“We thank our lawyer, Obey Shava, for deploying his energies through thick and thin to fight for Allan’s freedom,” the group of lawyers tweeted.

The government of Zimbabwe has been at the center of international attention, particularly that of the European Union and the United States, for its gross and continuous human rights violations.

The main leaders of the country have been the target of sanctions by Western countries to encourage them to back down.
