MT PLEASANT MP ACCUSED OF LYING, CHARGED
Mt Pleasant MP, Samuel Banda (MDC Alliance) has been dragged to court and charged with contravening the Electoral Act.
He stands accused of falsifying his home address during registration to enable him to represent the constituency. Banda resides in Mabvuku but he lied that he lives in Mt Pleasant.
The court heard that on December 28 last year, during the national biometric voter registration exercise, Banda misrepresented to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission that he resided at number 34 Waller Avenue, Mt Pleasant, Harare.
He deposed an affidavit of residence for voter registration to Zec commissioner of oath, purporting to be residing at that address. The State says Zec forms VR1 and VR9 will be produced in court as an exhibit.
Banda (43) was not asked to plead when he appeared before magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa, who remanded him out of custody to December 3, pending finalisation of the investigations.
