News:War Veterans' Secretary Douglas Mahiya To Appear In Court Today

<vote /> Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association Secretary Mr Douglas Mahiya will appear in court today. Mahiya’s lawyer, Harrison Nkomo told NewsDay that, the State was shifting goalposts as regards the charges against his client. He also confirmed that they did not know the whereabouts of Victor Matemadanda who was allegedly picked up on Thursday 28 July at his Gokwe home.

According to Nkomo,

We have been able to see Mahiya, but have no idea where Matemadanda is. It is difficult to tell the charges because they are constantly changing.

Liberation war hero and former Attorney-General Sobusa Gula-Ndebele said he was ready to offer legal assistance,

I stand ready to help them. Only that I have not been briefed.

According to the Zimbabwe Human Rights Lawyers police have charged the liberation war combatant for allegedly undermining authority of or insulting President Robert Mugabe.

Mahiya is appearing at the Harare Magistrates court.
