Sybeth Musengez issued with a warrant of arrest

Former ZANU PF activist Sybeth Musengezi has been issued with a warrant of arrest after failing to appear from his scheduled court yesterday.

Lawyer Douglas Coltart told the court that his client was sick and was not in position to attend court.

Douglas sought for a postponement, however Magistrate Yeukai Nzuda ruled that Musengezi is in default hence he should be arrested.

“I direct the court to Section 194(2) of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act. We ask that a warrant of arrest be issued as the court did not give the accused person leave to default,” he said

Musengezi is facing allegations of using a fake address to join Zanu PF structures and earn himself a position in the party.
