The trial of former Tourism Minister Prisca Mupfumira and her co-accused Ngoni Masoka failed to kick off today because her lawyer is not feeling well and could not attend court this morning, The Herald reports.
According to the publication:
Advocate Thembinkosi Magwaliba, who is representing Mupfumira, wrote to the court saying he was not feeling well and could not attend court for the hearing.
Mupfumira’s trial failed to kick-off last year because her lawyers said the former cabinet minister was mentally unstable to attend the trial.
Mpfumira was arrested in July last year for defrauding NSSA of close to US$100 Million dollars.
