The leader of the opposition party Ideal Zimbabwe, Tinashe Jonasi has denied allegations of insulting President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Jonasi has challenged the State to prove that he was targeting the President when he allegedly insulted “Mnangagwa”, saying the Head of State is not the only Mnangagwa.
Through his lawyer, Nontokozo Tachiona of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights, Jonasi said:
The appellant is accused of insulting one Mnangagwa. The State has a mammoth task to prove that the appellant was referring to (His Excellency) Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa and to also prove that indeed there is no other Mnangagwa who could have been the subject of the talk.
It also has to prove that there was an insult in the words that he allegedly uttered and in the unlikely event that they prove this at a trial they will have to prove that what was said is untrue…until his guilt is proved…
According to State papers, on an unknown date, Jonasi was invited to DStv channel 405 for an interview and allegedly insulted Mnangagwa in his remarks, suggesting Mnangagwa was engaged in sexual proclivities with his advisor Chris Mutsvangwa’s wife, Monica, the Information minister.
