Harare Magistrate Delays Komichi Ruling

Harare Magistrate Ruramai Chitumbura has postponed judgement in the case of MDC Alliance Chief Election Agent in the 2018 polls, Morgan Komichi which was expected today saying she was overwhelmed.

Magistrate Chitumbura told Komichi that the ruling will now be passed tomorrow, 25 January 2018.

However Komichi’s lawyer Obey Shava of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) requested for another date arguing that his client had other commitments on the given date, forcing Chitumbura to push the judgement to Monday 28 January.

Komichi is being accused of disturbing the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, (ZEC) proceedings during the announcement of the 2018 presidential elections.

Komichi is denying the charges, demanding v11 forms to prove his case.

He also told the court that the alleged offence he is accused of happened during break time therefore did not interupt ZEC proceedings.

Michael Reza is appearing for the state.
