The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights says it has intensified its bid to have 29 Chingwizi villagers arrested for alleged public violence freed from detention after filing a bail application.

The human rights body has raised serious concern with the continued detention of the 29 who include an 84 year old man, two teenagers and a toddler.

There is also a growing concern for the well-being of other villagers who are said to have gone for a week without accessing their anti-retroviral drugs.

Another detainee, Collin Tandare who is a single parent, is also said to have left two children including one under the age of two years unattended and have been reportedly gone missing.

Lawyer Collin Maboke told VOA Studio 7 that Chiredzi magistrate Tayengwa Chibanda will deliver his judgment Friday.
