Pastor Mawarire's charges ammended to Zimbabwean equivalence of treason: may face the noose

Zimbabwean authorities have changed/amended charges pressed against Pastor Evan Mawarire to subverting a constitutional government in contravention of Section 22 (2) of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act.

 #ThisFlag’s leader had earlier been charged with inciting public violence, and theft of a police baton stick and a helmet which the police say is missing.

 Latest charges are Zimbabwe;s equivalent of treason, and the pastor could now face the death penalty.
 
 The amendments have been confirmed by Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights.
