Journalists recused from testifying as State witnesses in Gushungo Dairy bombing

On Monday, High Court Judge Justice Tawanda Chitapi recused freelance journalists Mlondolozi Ndlovu, Malvern Mkudu and Media Centre director Ernest Mudzengi from testifying as state witnesses in a treason case relating to the bombing of Gushungo Dairy, after their lawyer Chris Mhike objected for reasons that are yet to be disclosed.

Mlondolozi Ndlovu and Watmore Makokoba wrote articles on 21 August last year after attending a press conference convened by the accused Owen Kuchata at New Ambassador Hotel. Kuchata was later arrested together with Borman Ngwenya, Solomon Makumbe and Silas Pfupa. Kuchata pleaded guilty to charges of possession of weaponry for sabotage, and money laundering for terrorism purposes and is now serving a 9 year sentence.
