Trial Date Set for Suspended Court Boss

 

The state has set the trial date for suspended Zimbabwe chief magistrate Mishrod Guvamombe to 9 April in a case in which he is facing charges of criminal abuse of office.

Guvamombe, who is out on $3 000 bail appeared in court today for a routine remand and was stood down to Wednesday 20 March for variation of bail conditions.

The suspended chief magistrate is being accused of criminal abuse of office after he allegedly offered internship to former Zanu PF Ministers, Supa Mandiwanzira and Saviour Kasukuwere who are both studying law at the University of Zimbabwe and are also being tried for different offences within the same courts.

The embattled court official had previously told the court that he wants to challenge prosecution by his juniors on the previous appearance before the court.
