Zimbabwe pastor Evan Mawarire found not guilty of subversion

Today, Zimbabwean human rights activist and civil society leader Evan Mawarire was acquitted of "subversion" charges.

(Reuters) - A Zimbabwean court found a pastor not guilty on Wednesday of attempting to subvert the government in a case seen as a barometer of judicial independence under new President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Evan Mawarire was a strident critic of former President Robert Mugabe who resigned last week after 37 years in power week under pressure from the army and ruling ZANU-PF party.
