The MDC supporters who were arrested at party headquarters will spend the weekend in jail after they were denied bail today.

The 21 have been charged with committing public violence and will be back on court on Monday.

The 21 people, who are represented by Denford Halimani, Gift Mtisi, Kossam Ncube and Lizwe Jamela of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights were arrested after some ZRP officers raided the offices of the opposition MDC Alliance party after obtaining a search warrant authorising them to search for grenades, stones, unlicensed firearms, ammunition, computers, computer accessories and some subversive material allegedly possessed by opposition MDC Alliance leaders.

ZRP claimed that they were involved in alleged acts of public violence on Wednesday 01 August 2018 when protests erupted with civilians protesting against the outcome of the 2018 harmonised elections.
