The case which had suspiciously took time to be tried is set to appear this Monday (today).
“There are worries that the violent incident happened some weeks ago but the police was dragging its feet pointing to suspected interference from the Minister,” claimed one informant who requested anonymity.
It is alleged that Kazembe has vowed that John Mudzonga who is the Mazowe Rural District Council Chairman will be the next Mazowe DCC Chairperson at whatever cost.
Efforts to get a comment from Minister Kazembe were unsuccessful.
