The leader of opposition political party Ideal Zimbabwe, Tinashe Jonasi, has challenged ZANU PF to prove that he was wrong in what he said.
Jonas allegedly said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa was bedding Information Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa.
He appeared in court facing a charge of undermining Mnangagwa’s authority.
In his application for bail before Harare magistrate Vongai Guuriro Muchuchuti on Thursday, Jonas’s lawyer Nontokozo Dube Tachiona said:
The court should consider the accused innocent because the state has not placed any evidence against him.
The state claims that the accused claimed that the President bedded Monica Mutsvangwa and had a child with her but there is no statement from her disputing that.
The accused is alleged to have called Vice President (Constantino) Chiwenga a bleaching moron but he has not written any statement disputing that. He also accused Mohadi of being a killer but the same situation prevails.
What has to be done is to prove that what the accused said is false.
The people the police say they intend to call as witnesses have nothing to say against the allegations. Chiwenga must come and prove he doesn’t bleach. So should everyone who is involved in the allegations.
The sate is opposed to bail arguing that Jonasi was a flight risk and a person of on fixed aboard.
Moses Mapanga appeared for the state. Muchuchuti is yet to rule on the matter.
