Komichi trial deferred

HARARE - The trial of former MDC chief elections officer Morgen Komichi was yesterday deferred after defence witnesses failed to turn up in court.

One of Komichi’s witnesses was said to be out of the country, while the other one could not testify because he sat through all the trial proceedings.

Harare magistrate Elijah Makomo remanded the matter to Friday.

Komichi was arrested in July after he presented to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec), a ballot paper that was allegedly picked up from a dustbin at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC), the electoral body’s command centre.

He was put to his defence following the closure of the State’s case, after leading evidence from seven witnesses.

Komichi told the court that Zec hatched a plan to get him arrested.

His lawyer Alec Muchadehama said Zec failed to handle the July election process well, resulting in some ballot papers going missing.
