Prosecutor Labels Magistrate Either ‘Brave’ Or ‘Stupid’ For Allowing Live Streaming Of Biti Trial

Chief prosecutor Michael Reza allegedly sent a text message to another prosecutor, Thabani Mpofu, denigrating the magistrate presiding over Tendai Biti’s case.

Reza labelled magistrate Gloria Takundwa stupid for allowing journalists to live stream the court proceedings without the Chief Justice’s approval.

The text which was shown in court today read as follows

Cde Mpofu. It’s Reza, how are you? Another strange ruling by the magistrate trying Tendai Biti. They applied for live streaming of the case, with cameras and journalists in court and proceedings beamed all over the world. She has just agreed to that without authority of her boss the Chief Justice. She is either very brave or very stupid or both kkkkkk.

Biti’s lawyers have since applied for Chief prosecutor Michael Reza to be held in contempt of court. Magistrate Gloria Takundwa has referred the matter to the High Court for guidance.

  1. A surmountable judicial procedural error…… but certainly judicious to live stream Biti trial for Zimbabwe as a rising democracy in a viciously competing global democratic space.
