Two Tsvangirai supporters in court for ‘defacing Mugabe posters’
TWO MDC-T members in Chitungwiza yesterday appeared in court facing charges of allegedly defacing Zanu-PF campaign posters.
Trymore Mhosva (28), the deputy organising secretary for Ward 21, and Wilson Benhura (47), Chitungwiza North organising secretary, denied the charge before magistrate Mr Kudakwashe Jarabini.
The duo denied destruction of political posters under section 152 of the Electoral Act before Mr Jarabini remanded the pair to October 15 on US$50 bail apiece.
Prosecutor Mr Edmond Ndambakuwa alleges that on July 19 and at around 2pm, the duo and three other accomplices identified as Ticha, Norman and Shame, who are still at large, teamed up and moved around in Unit A removing, destroying and defacing posters.
These are posters of President Mugabe, aspiring Member of Parliament for Chitungwiza North Robson Mhandu and aspiring Ward 21 councillor Maxwell Dube.
