Hospitalized activist given bail

March 03, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Prominent Zimbabwean rights activist Jestina Mukoko was granted bail after three months in detention, but she was unable to leave a hospital.

Mukoko was taken from her home in early December and held in an undisclosed location until being jailed Dec. 23. She has been accused of plotting to overthrow President Robert Mugabe, charges widely dismissed as trumped up.

Mukoko was admitted to the private Avenues Clinic three weeks ago after police repeatedly ignored orders that she receive medical attention.
