Zimbabwe National  Army colonel, Christopher Mayoyo is suing the MDC leader for $500 000 in defamation for restating what the army colonel’s victims, who identified the army officer during the brutal assaults, have been saying all along.

Following his defeat by President Morgan Tsvangirai in 2008, President Robert Mugabe unleashed the army on innocent Zimbabweans for daring to vote for change. Over 200 people were killed in the violence. Only recently, former Zanu PF provincial Affairs minister for Masvingo, Kudakwashe Bhasikiti has gone on to reveal the names of senior army personnel deployed in the provinces to brutalize innocent Zimbabweans in 2008.

President Tsvangirai appeared at the High Court today, where High Court judge Justice Amy Tsanga postponed the trial to 14 July 2016.
