Harare, Zimbabwe (News of the South) – Movement for Democratic Change President Morgan Tsvangirai has taken Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko to court on defamation charges.
This comes after the latter accused the veteran opposition politician of plotting to assassinate former Vice President Joshua Nkomo.
I’m a statement Tsvangirai says his lawyers yesterday filed defamation papers against “Vice President Mphoko for unashamedly alleging on national television on 4 February 2017 that President Tsvangirai was involved in an assassination plot against the late vice President Joshua Nkomo in the early 1980s.”
“He equally falsely alleged, with neither shame nor compunction, that President Tsvangirai had played a part in the Gukurahundi genocide and had killed the officer in charge of Tsholotsho police station.”
“For his misguided and blatantly defamatory statements, Mboko will now have his day in court.”, he said.0
