Magistrate Tendai Mabwe will tomorrow 07 November 2013 give his ruling on the case of Deputy National Chairman Senator Morgen Komichi. He is accused of fraud and contravening the country’s electoral laws. The matter was closed last week after both the state and the defense counsel closed their cases.
Yesterday, the state prosecutor Mr. Michael Mugabe
of the Attorney-General’s Office was expected to give his closing
address in writing. Sen. Komichi’s lawyer Mr. Aleck Muchadehama has
promised to have read and submit his reply in writing by end of today.
The Assembly urges all progressive citizens of Zimbabwe who can make their time, to go to Court 4 Rotten Row at 0830hrs.
Sen. Komichi is innocent until proven guilty by a credible court of law.
The Youth Assembly condemns the continued harassment of our leader as
just an act of desperation meant to cover for ZEC’s failure to fulfill
Sen. Morgen Komichi was just acting in his legal
capacity as the Chief Election agent of President Morgan Tsvangirai. It
boggles the mind why someone raising electoral complains through the
correct channels is then prosecuted instead of the Electoral Board
investing the irregularities.
ZEC clearly failed to preside over
elections starting with the failure to contact special voting in the
stipulated time and Sen. Komichi is now being used as sacrificial lamb.
We demand that the court be independent from political manipulation.
The judiciary system has been used to victimize our members including
Last Tamai Maengahama, Yvonne Musarurwa, Cllr Tungamirai Madzokere who
have been in prison since May 2011. Justice delayed is justice denied.
Free Morgan Komichi Now.
