  • Minister Komichi denied bail
    Movement for Democratic Change
    July 29, 2013

    Hon. Morgen Komichi, the chief election agent for President Tsvangirai has been remanded in custody after the State refused him bail on charges that he opened a ballot paper used during the special vote early this month.

    Hon. Komichi is also the MDC deputy national chairperson and deputy minister of transport.

    The ballot paper was found dumped in a dustbin at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) following the casting of the special vote by civil servants who will be on duty on the election date on 31 July.

    The matter was today remanded to tomorrow at 10 am.

    What the MDC finds puzzling is that Hon. Komichi was arrested when he is the one who made a complaint to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission on how the ballot paper had found its way into the dustbin.
