Zimbabwe editor charged with subversion

Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe speaks during celebrations marking his 90th birthday in Marondera on February 23, 2014The editor of a Zimbabwean state-owned newspaper appeared in court Saturday on charges of subversion and undermining the authority of President Robert Mugabe. Edmund Kudzayi, editor of the Sunday Mail, was not asked to plead and was remanded in custody until a bail hearing on Monday. Kudzayi is also facing charges of creating a fictitious Facebook account in the name of Baba Jukwa, who has a cult following for his claims to expose Mugabe government secrets. Earlier this month, Mugabe accused his information minister, Jonathan Moyo, of using his influence over the state media to attack rivals within the ruling ZANU-PF party, which is riven by divisions over who should succeed the ageing president.
