TOP del.icio.us

A small update from an observer on the ongoing trial of Munyaradzi Gwisai +5:

The cross-examination of key sate witness, a state informer who claims to be Detective Sergeant Jonathan Shoko commenced today (Tuesday 1 November) at Rotten Row Court in Harare. Defence Attorney Alec Muchadehama seeks to prove the unreliability of Shoko’s evidence which was presented last week. The state is heavily depending on its informer in the trial of our comrades Munyaradzi Gwisai, Tafadzwa Choto, Tatenda Mombeyarara, Hopewell Gumbo and others. Meanwhile the trial has been adjourned to Friday 4 November 2011.
