Magistrate wrongfully issues warrant of arrest for MDC Alliance’s Joanna Mamombe



Joaana Mamombe

Magistrate wrongfully issues a warrant of arrest for MDC Alliance’s Joanna Mamombe. The warrant was, however, cancelled after her lawyer Jeremiah Bamu argued that Mamombe was not supposed to appear in court on the day.

On Thursday, Harare magistrate Ngoni Nduna issued an arrest warrant for Joana Mamombe after the State claimed the Harare West MP had failed to turn up for court.Bamu argued:

There is confusion as to which matter because the warrant was issued on the charges of publishing falsehoods prejudicial to the State, a case which was postponed to 26 August last week. The matter was initially set for today (Thursday), then State issued a summons for them to appear on 31 July. Obey Shava (lawyer) appeared with them on 31 July and had the matter postponed to 26 September.

The State issued summons again and we came back to court on August 4 and the date was corrected from 26 September to 26 August.

On July 31, Mamombe, Cecilia Chimbiri, Netsai Marova and their lawyer, Shava were arrested while coming from court and proceeding to Harare Central Police Station to report as required by their bail conditions. No charges were brought against them.

The legislator has several cases pending before the courts including last year’s treason case and contravention of Covid-19 regulations case.
