A Harare magistrate has thrown out Saviour Kasukuwere’s application for discharge at the close of the State case.

Ms Josephine Sande said Kasukuwere had a case to answer hence should be put to his defence.
Kasukuwere had said his life was in danger and had to escape following an attack at his house by unknown assailants.
His lawyer Mr Jonathan Samukange successfully applied to have inspection in-loco at his house, number 4 Deny’s Close, Glen Lorne, Harare.
He took out 113 used cartridges which he showed to the court saying they were collected after the shooting.
The State said since Kasukuwere could not identify his attackers, he could have been attacked by armed robbers and as such should have reported the matter to police rather than leave the country illegally.
