News:Kereke, National Prosecuting Authority To Pay 36 000 In Legal Costs

<vote /> Former Zanu-PF parliamentarian, Munyaradzi Kereke and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) are going to share $36 000 in legal costs in a case which took six years to be completed.

The sharing of costs follows a ruling by regional magistrate Mr Noel Mupeiwa ordering the two parties to share equally 75 percent of legal costs accrued in the former Bikita West legislator’s prosecution and Constitutional Court proceedings.Mr Mupeiwa subtracted 25 percent from the costs on the basis that Kereke was acquitted on the charge of indecent assault.

Kereke’s case had to proceed through private prosecution after suspended Prosecutor-General Johannes Tomana refused to prosecute him, saying there was no evidence linking the legislator to the offence.
