MDC vice president Morgen Komichi’s trial failed to start Wednesday after he was serves state papers late.
Komichi is charged with contravening the Electoral Act and disorderly conduct after he invaded the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) results centre during announcement of the July 31 poll outcome.
Prosecuting, Michael Reza sought postponement of the case to a later date so that Komichi could go through the papers and prepare his defence.
Komichi is being represented by human rights lawyer Obey Shava.
The State however, complained that Komichi did not pick his papers on time despite having been alerted.
Prosecutor Reza told court that investigations have been finalised and that the State was ready for trial.
Harare magistrate Ruramai Chitumbura then postponed the case to October 18 for trial.
Four witnesses are lined up to testify against the opposition politician.
According to the State, Komichi interrupted ZEC proceedings saying that the MDC would not accept the election results since he had not signed for them as the party’s chief election officer.
Security officers intervened and ushered him out of the room together with MDC leader Nelson Chamisa’s spokesperson, Dr Nkululeko Sibanda.
Prosecutor Reza is being assisted by Tafadzwanashe Chipariwa from the president’s special anti-corruption unit.
Komichi is denying the allegations.
