Bail ruling in the case of 11 suspected MDC-Alliance marshals who allegedly assaulted a police officer at a food court in Harare after declaring it a no-go area for police officers was yesterday postponed to today because the presiding magistrate is not feeling well.

According to the State, the 11
— Hilton Tamangani (29), Evans Chinyanga (39), Tichaona Maziya (22), Petros Kaesa (44), Tafadzwa Madziwa (23), Lovemore Chitengo(42), Robson Mutseta (31), Hillary Nyawasha (29), Denford Mlambo (41), Blessing Chirodza (41) and David Tawanda Tekere (35) — pounced on the police officer, Tatenda Sibiya, who was standing at the intersection of Julius Nyerere Way and Kwame Nkrumah Avenue.

Harare provincial magistrate Mrs Vongai Muchuchuti-Guwuriro told the court that she was not familiar with the matter as the presiding magistrate, Mrs Learnmore Mapiye, was not in attendance.
She rolled over the ruling to today.

The 11 allegedly took turns to punch and slap the policeman while ordering him to leave ‘‘their’’ area.State media
