Zimbabwe court postpones bail hearing for activist pastor Evan Mawarire

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwean activist pastor Evan Mawarire will spend more time in detention after a court on Wednesday postponed his bail hearing because state prosecutors were not ready to proceed with the case.

Mawarire is among hundreds of civilians who face public order charges following last week’s violent protests over fuel price hikes. He denies the charges.
