MDC secretary-general, Douglas Mwonzora who is facing charges of negligent driving, failure to insure a motor vehicle and to licence a motor vehicle after he was involved in an accident has been removed from remand as a State witness fails to show up for trial.
Harare Magistrate Richard Ramaboa ordered the State to proceed by way of summons when it has put its house in order.
The State alleges that on May 27, 2018, r, Mwonzora was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser along Tynwald Road in Harare. It is alleged the vehicle was neither insured nor licensed, contrary to the provisions of the Road Traffic Act. It is alleged that when Mwonzora approached the intersection of Kirkman Drive and Tynwald Road, he reversed and bumped into another Toyota Land Cruiser which was behind him, and was being driven by Onismo Muzhingi.
It is alleged no one was injured and both vehicles sustained minor damages. The State also alleges that Mwonzora was negligent after he failed to keep his vehicle under proper control
