ThisFlag Pastor Evan Mawarire’s hearing has been postponed again.

Mawarire is challenging being placed on bail.

The hearing was moved forward after the state indicated that it was not ready to proceed.

The Magistrate refused to remove the bail conditions and the matter has since been referred to the High Court on the 21st April 2017.

Mawarire was charged for Subversion of a constitutionally elected government; for organising protests in Zimbabwe and in New York.

Other charges are that he allegedly “insulted the national flag” to brand criminal activities and wearing the flag while subverting the government.

He was granted bail by Justice Clement Phiri in the High Court, the latter who said the state was very weak and Mawarire was granted $300 bail.
