The 23 appeared before magistrate Ignatius Mhene for their initial remand and were remanded in custody until Monday for bail application.

Charges against the 23 supporters arose on the 13th of this month when they allegedly unleashed violence to Zanu PF supporters at Nyakomba Business Centre, where they stoned the business premises and injured 8 people in the process.
