The trial of MDC Alliance chairperson Morgen Komichi, who stands accused of attempting to disrupt the announcement of presidential election results by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) has been set for October 3.

Komichi (54), who is represented by Obey Shava and charged under Section 186 of the Electoral Act (Chapter 2.13), appeared before magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa.

The State alleges that on August 2, Komichi was at a Harare Hotel where Zec was announcing the July 30 presidential election results.

After a break, Komichi went to the podium reserved for commissioners, grabbed the microphone and announced that the MDC Alliance rejected the results.

Komichi said Zec had not followed due process when announcing the results. Zec, the complainant in the matter, was represented by its security officer Concree Chivinda.

Sebastian Mutizirwa appeared for the State.
