Activists freed

Thirty-eight political activists who were detained on charges of plotting protests against President Robert Mugabe similar to those that toppled long-serving leaders in Egypt and Tunisia were freed today. Defense lawyer Alec Muchadehama said:  “Out of the 46 who were in custody, 38 have been released completely after the state agreed with us that they had no case to answer.”  The remaining eight — including Munyaradzi Gwisai who heads a small but radical pressure group called the International Socialist Organization — would be back in court for a remand hearing session on March 21.
