Zimbabwe activist pastor denied bail, faces two weeks in jail

A Zimbabwean pastor at the heart of a protest movement against President Robert Mugabe was denied bail on Friday, leaving him facing at least two weeks in jail before his next hearing on charges of plotting to overthrow the government. Evan Mawarire – whose #ThisFlag movement led the biggest anti-government rallies in a decade in 2016 – is also charged with inciting violence and insulting the national flag. The preacher arrived at the magistrates court in handcuffs in an open police truck and sat calmly during the proceedings.
