Mzila-Ndlovu case postponed

Moses Mzila-Ndlovu

THE TRIAL of outgoing co-National Healing and Reconciliation minister Moses Mzila-Ndlovu on armed robbery and theft charges, was yesterday further postponed, as the court is yet to assign another magistrate to deal with it.


This came after the original magistrate Mark Dzira recused himself from dealing with the case as he and the accused had worked together some time ago in Plumtree.
The prosecution yesterday said another magistrate, yet to be chosen, will start
dealing with the case on September 9.

Mzila-Ndovu is facing charges of armed robbery and theft of property worth $427 charges.

He has not yet been asked to plead to the charges and he is out of custody.

The State represented by Tinashe Dzipe, alleges that Mzila-Ndlovu threatened to shoot two firewood poachers, Vupenyu Gumbo and Lucky Dube, before robbing them of their cash, car keys, cellphone and personal identity documents.
