Prayer Gavhanga (27) of Magwegwe West was again not asked to plead to contravening Section 72 (1) of the Road Traffic Act (failing to comply with lawful instructions given a by a police officer controlling traffic), when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Evelyn Mashawakure on Monday.
He is out of custody on $50 bail.
During his initial appearance in court, Gavhanga denied the charges. Charges against Gavhanga are that on November 9 this year at Ascot Shopping Centre, he was signalled to pull off the road by a Sergeant Jeche who was riding one of Mugabe’s outriders.
However he allegedly continued driving along the road behind Jeche and interfered with the motorcade. Zibusiso Ncube is representing Gavhanga.
