SUNDAY Mail editor, Edmund Kudzayi, appeared in court Saturday charged with charges of insurgency, terrorism, banditry, sabotage, subverting a constitutionally elected government and not securing firearms.
According to a charge sheet made available to reporters, the State alleges that: "Sometime in April 2013, the accused connived with his elder brother Philip Tawanda Kudzayi and others who are still at large and hatched a plan to overthrow the Government of Zimbabwe by unconstitutional means in the run up to the 31st July 2013 Zimbabwe General elections.
"Accused created a gmail account called firstname.lastname@example.org using an Econet line registered to Philip Tawanda Kudzayi which line is being used by him. The said gmail account was used to create a Facebook account called Baba Jukwa.
"The accused planned and organized with other accused persons calling themselves, The Gunda Nleya Brigade and Zimbabwe Revolutionary Army, to overthrow the Government through waging war and urged people to join the Zimbabwe Revolutionary Army.
"The accused posted articles on the Baba Jukwa Facebook page which encouraged rebellion against the Government if the said election is stolen. They also posted articles to the effect that they had a Dare Rechimurenga in place and that a team was on the ground studying the situation in Zimbabwe."
