BREAKING: MDC-T chief poll agent Komichi denied bail

THE MDC-T’s chief elections agent Morgan Komichi (49) will miss out on the elections scheduled for Wednesday after Harare magistrate Anita Tshuma turned down his bail application this afternoon on the basis that his release from custody would not augur well with the political atmosphere in the country.

Allegations against Komichi are that on July 25 at the Hrarae International Conference Centre where special ballots were being counteed, he said a certain person brought to him an envelope which he said he had picked in a bin.

Komichi then presented the envelope to the complainant, Zec, and alleged that he had unsealed it out of curiosity. It is alleged that he discovered three ballots — for the Presidential, House of Assembly and local authority elections — in the envelope.

Komichi is said to have alleged that Zec officials were destroying ballot papers used by the police officers, which were in favour of MDC–T candidates during the special vote held from July 14 to 15.

        The thug named Morgan stole ballot papers in the hope of discrediting the election. Now his stupid deed has earned him a week in jail!

    I urge the police to arrest without fear or favour. Stay close to those who declared they will announce results on their own and lock them up after one or two words to that effect. batai munghu, ndiyo rule of law chaiyo. Vakadzdzi vavo vanosara votvaka vamwe.

      ‘Without fear or favour’ now where is Kitsiyatota and the killers of Nabanyama? Talk of impunity, my foot!

    Bakithi ! bazali kasetheni abantwana amagama azwakalayo.
    Kambe yikuthini ukuthi igama lomntwana ngu Komitshi.
    Ucina esesenza njenge komitshi.
    Salani kuhle bakithi kodwa bakamthwakazi lingakhohlwa abantu
    bakini nxa livota kusasa.

      Are you responsible for the names you have excerpt perhaps the nickname? Sorry if you think its the whiteman who introduced the teacup. Tanganda tea was longgrown in the eastern highlands long before 1890 and was relished in ‘komichis’ of wood or clay. Dont hate so much that.,fellow will not be found guilty. Follow the story into new Zimbabwe.

    Lets face it guys, ZEC did gd by reporting the matter to the police………….. How can someone know who you voted for, that they will destroy yr papers….??? Above all Komichi admits that the envelope was sealed. He was only arrested after it was proven that the officer didn’t manage to cast his vote. Let him answer the case n if he is guilty let him face the music. THIS DEFENDING OF SUSPECTS IS WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR THE PAST 33 YEARS AND IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABT CHANGE IT MUST START BY KOMICHI HELPING POLICE WITH THEIR INVESTIGATIONS…………..
