Jestina Mukoko update

I cannot find anything definite so far online - Mukoko was due to be in court today. There are, however, some alarming rumours floating around, e.g.

* Silobreaker.
"Former ZBC newsreader and now political prisoner Jestina Mukoko is being force fed poison at the notorious Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison, according to the UK Sunday Independent newspaper."

* Denford Magora's Zimbabwe Blog
"Guys, the real business of this Jestina Mukoko court case is being done outside the courtroom and what we see happening in the courts is simply a show."

* Jurist
"This news comes after a high court rejected Mukoko's petition for release to receive medical treatment on Friday. Mukoko's attorney Beatrice Mtetwa has ordered a toxicology test to corroborate the allegations, saying that Mukoko is psychologically traumatized and it is not sure that she has been able to tell the whole story about her treatment because of the constant presence of state officials."
