Yesterday Magistrate Josephine Sande withdrew charges against him.
The dropping of the case comes after the State had asked to withdraw the matter before plea saying that Prosecutor-General Ray Goba was yet to peruse the docket. Prosecutor Francisca Mukumbiri was handling the file.
Mukumbiri yesterday said that if need be Matemadanda would be summoned to court.
Matemadanda’s lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa stated that the State should put a specific time-frame to drop the charges in the event that they fail to summon him.
At the end however, magistrate Sande formally withdrew the charges against Matemadanda. WATCH AND HEAR MORE ON THE CHARGES BELOW:
