The trial of 20 Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) activists who were arrested in Mutare last year has been postponed to 2 October following the death of one of the suspects. News Day reports that ZCTU eastern region manager Tenson Muchefa suffered a fatal heart attack at the St Joseph Hospital last week. He and the other 19 activists were arrested last year at the labour organisation’s offices in the eastern border city. They were accused of preparing to demonstrate over the 2% tax on electronic money transactions and other fiscal measures introduced by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube. Magistrate Notebulgah Muchineripi agreed to the postponement.
