O’Donovan ambaye aliachiwa kwa dhamana, anakabiliwa na kifungo kisichofikia miaka 20 jela akipatikana na hatia.
Mwandishi huyo ambaye alikana kosa hilo alilodaiwa kuliandika kwenye mtandao wa Twitter, alikabidhi pasipoti yake mahakamani na anatakiwa kuripoti polisi mara mbili kwa wiki wakati kesi yake iliyoahirishwa itakaposikilizwa mahakamani.Mahakamani, mwandishi huyo alisema madai hayo ya kumtukana rais huyo mwenye umri wa miaka 93, hayana msingi na yana lengo la kumchafua.

Kukamatwa kwa mwandishi huyo kunafanyika mara ya kwanza tangu Mugabe ateue rais wa masuala ya mtandao mwezi mmoja uliopita, jambo ambalo lilishutumiwa na wanaharakati kwamba lilikuwa limelengwa kwa vyombo vya habari.O’Donovan amekuwa akifanya kazi na televisheni ya Magamba ya nchini humo ambayo huelezea vipindi vyake kuwa ni vya burudani na kuchekesha.
