Saviour Kasukuwere, an exiled former Cabinet minister, has lodged an application requesting the cancellation of his arrest warrant in order to participate in the upcoming presidential race scheduled for August 23.
The warrant of arrest was initially issued on January 17, 2019, after Kasukuwere failed to appear for trial on four counts of criminal abuse of office.
Kasukuwere’s legal representatives, Mhishi and Nkomo Legal Practitioners, argue that the warrant was erroneously issued and claim that the charges leveled against their client lack essential elements of the offense of criminal abuse of duty.
Kasukuwere has expressed his intention to contest in the presidential election and is seeking the removal of the warrant to proceed with his candidacy.
