Nigel Murambiwa (30), Tapiwa Masenda (27) and Chinjai Kambuzuma (32) were granted free bail and remanded to August 14 by Chinhoyi magistrate Nyaradzo Ringisai.
It is the State case that the ruling party supporters invaded Mliswa’s farm ahead of the June 10 by-elections and repeatedly assaulted the politician’s employees with sticks, iron bars and logs accusing their boss of seeking to contest the by-election as an independent candidate.
The suspects also allegedly stole the farm workers’ kitchen utensils and other valuable goods worth $1 000 during their stay at the farm.
Mliswa eventually lost the by-election to Zanu PF candidate Keith Guza.
The three are being represented by Mike Mutsvairo.
