Williams and released on bail

This evening the two WOZA leaders, Jenni williams and Magodonga Mahlangu, were released from Mlondolozi Prison, after being granted bail by a High Court judge earlier in the day.  Both are in high spirits.

The release on bail does demonstrate that there are some vestiges of rationality within the Zimbabwean justice system in spite of widespread miscarriage of justice.  It is our wish that these pockets of respect for the rule of law will gradually expand to take over the whole system so that all citizens may enjoy the rights to which they are entitled. 

Meanwhile we welcome Jennni and Magondonga back to liberty and thank them for their courage and commitment and the sacrifice they have made for the benefitof us all.
