Emmanuel Muzorera, 34, a Zanu-PF supporter based in Gweru who was arrested and taken to Bulawayo Central Police, has appeared in court for disrupting First Lady, Grace Mugabe's Bulawayo rally.

He walked onto the at AmaZulu Sports Club podium and picked up a microphone without permission.

He initially pleaded guilty to picking up the microphone when he appeared before provincial magistrate Sibongile Msipa.

However, when the magistrate asked him to confirm that he indeed intended to disrupt the proceedings at the rally, he denied saying he had wanted to deliver a solidarity message.

Magistrate Msipa said she would therefore enter a plea of not guilty as Muzorera had said he had wanted to give a speech.
