The magistrate court is expected to hand down it’s ruling on MDC co-vice president Morgan Komichi who is facing charges of disrupting the announcement of the 2018 elections results. The ruling will be delivered on January 21 2019.
This comes after the key witness in the matter and Zimbabwe Electoral Commission Acting Chief Elections Officer, Mr Utoile Silaigwana indicated he had not personally seen Komichi disrupting the announcement, but was only informed by a witness over the phone.
Mr Silaigwana indicated that he was informed of the disruption of the announcement of results by the accused person through a third party over a telephone call, but he was in a different room at the premises where the alleged offence took place.
Komichi is charged for having contravened Section 186 of the Electoral Act by having interrupted, obstructed and disturbed the announcement of elections results at the HICC National Elections Command Centre by shouting that the announced results were fake and the MDC Alliance rejected the results.
