Mamombe mental condition to be examined

THE State yesterday indicated that it wants MDC-Alliance member, Joana Mamombe, to be examined by two Government doctors to ascertain her mental condition after her doctor indicated that she was suffering from a mental disorder

Prosecutor Mr Michael Reza notified Mamombe’s defence team of Messrs Alec Muchadehama and Jeremiah Bamu that he will make an application to have their client examined by two doctors.

Mr Reza is expected to make the application on September 22, when Mamombe returns to court.

Mamombe is jointly charged with Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova on charges of faking their abductions in May this year.

The recalled Harare West legislator was on Tuesday issued with a warrant of arrest after she failed to attend court for trial, as she was admitted to Borrowdale Halfway House, receiving treatment for anxiety disorder.

Her lawyers told the court that Mamombe was not in a position to comprehend proceedings as she was suffering from anxiety disorder.
