A WOMEN of Zimbabwe Arise (Woza) activist, who allegedly stripped naked in front of police officers at Bulawayo Central Police Station yesterday appeared in court charged with indecent exposure.

She was arrested while demanding the release of her colleagues arrested during a demonstration on Valentine's Day.

She was remanded to March 4 on $100 bail.

Some of her colleagues were arrested and taken to Bulawayo Central Police Station.

A docket of indecent exposure was opened against her.
