Presidential election candidate Engineer Gastaff Kativu, leader of the CKD Campaign has taken President Emerson Mnangagwa and his deputy Constantino Chiwenga to court demanding for the postponement of the 2018 elections claiming that the country is not ready for free and fair elections.
Kativu who has attracted a lot of attention from Zimbabweans for declaring himself as the Moses to deliver Zimbabweans to Canaan, filed his case at the High Court in Harare on Tuesday.
In his application he accuses the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission chairperson Priscilla Chigumba as the first respondents with Mnangagwa and Chiwenga as joint second respondents.
A full outline of the court case raised by the rogue dressed Kativu reads as follows:
