Komichi judgement day set for November 7th

A magistrate will on November 7th deliver a judgement on the case against MDC-T elections agent Morgan Komichi, who is accused of tampering with ballot papers during the July 31st elections.

Komichi’s lawyer, Alec Muchadehama told SW Radio Africa Friday that he will be making ‘closing of the case submissions’ on November 6th and the judgment will be delivered on the following day.

This follows last week’s reports that the state had closed its case.

Komichi was arrested on July 28th after he presented to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) an envelope containing ballot papers that were allegedly picked from a rubbish bin.

Accusations against Komichi are that he tampered with the ballot papers and sought to discredit ZEC.

Komichi denies the allegations and maintains that he responded to an anonymous tip-off that some ballot papers had been dumped in a rubbish bin at the Harare International Conference Centre.

Two weeks ago he told the court that when he handed the papers over to ZEC he wanted Chairperson Justice Rita Makarau ‘to establish whether or not they were authentic’ and to establish how they ended up in a bin. – SW Radio Africa News
