Muchechetere is facing charges of contravening procurement procedures while he was head of the ZBC. In February this year, the Constitutional Court threw out Muchechetere’s appeal after ruling that the application was not filed in terms of the law.
His lawyer, Thabani Mpofu, withdrew their first constitutional application challenging the criminal proceedings but later made another application for referral to Constitutional Court. In his ruling magistrate Mr Noel Mupeiwa pointed out that the Constitution does not allow accused to make the same application before the same magistrate court.
Prosecutor, Mr Michael Reza advised the court that he was overwhelmed with work before postponing the matter to August 2 for trial. Mr Mupeiwa said he would be committed on that day and referred the matter to another court.
