Lawyer Tells Prosecutor Not To Be Overzealous
Prominent Harare lawyer and ZANU PF legislator Jonathan Samukange on Wednesday warned the prosecutor who is presiding over the matter of suspended chief magistrate Mishrod Guvamombe to be professional.
Samukange advised the “overzealous” prosecutor, Zivanai Macharaga that he will face persecution if the regime changes. Said Samukange:
You must be professional and not be overzealous. You must not humiliate, persecute and embarrass your brother, who is also an officer of the court and I told you you’ll also be persecuted when this regime changes.
Samukange later applied for the temporary release of Guvamombe’s passport, saying he wanted to attend his child’s graduation ceremony.
Magistrate Nemadire postponed the matter to March 18.
