Remnant Pentecostal Church leader Pastor Patrick Mugadza was acquitted by magistrate Blessing Murwisi of criminal nuisance charges following a protest he staged in November 2016.

Murwisi found Mugadza not guilty and acquitted him after ruling that the State failed to prove its case beyond any reasonable doubt. He also ruled that the state failed to present independent witnesses to corroborate the evidence of the three witnesses, who are all police officers and who testified during Pastor Mugadza’s trial.
