MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora has filed a $1 million lawsuit against Zimpapers, the publishers of The Heard. Mwonzora is alleging that the Herald published a false story in which they claimed that Mwonzora attributed the election loss to the association with former president Robert Mugabe. Part of the court papers read,
The second defendant (Herald Reporter Takunda Mawodza) never interviewed the plaintiff as alleged and his publication was malicious and defamatory of the plaintiff. It also set up the plaintiff against his colleagues in the MDC Alliance. As a result of the malicious publication, plaintiff has suffered damages for defamation and contumelia.
