Pro-democracy activist Makomborero Haruzivishe has been sentenced to 36 months in prison by a Harare magistrate.
Magistrate Judith Taruvinga sentenced Haruzivishe to 24 months in prison and 10 months were suspended on the first count (incitement to commit public violence).
On the second count (resisting a peace officer), Haruzivishe was sentenced to 12 months of which 6 months were suspended.
The MDC Alliance member and former Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) secretary-general was convicted of the offences on Wednesday last week.
There was drama as police dispersed journalists gathered to hear MDC Alliance Spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere give a brief of the latest development.
Police cited lack of social distancing as the reason for breaking the address which even led to the assault of one freelance journalist Samuel Takawira.
