Zimbabwe’s former finance minister and opposition leader Tendai Biti was paraded in court on charges of inciting violence.
Biti who arrived the court in handcuffs was paraded days after Zambia’s government rejected his request for asylum and deported him back to his country.
Prosecutors accuse Mr Biti of fueling illegal protests by rejecting Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory in the fiercely contested elections on 30 July.
However, President Mnangagwa said Mr Biti had been released on bail following his intervention.
Police in Zimbabwe were looking for Biti and eight other opposition figures for allegedly causing violence following a disputed national election in which President Mnangagwa was declared the winner.
