MDC ALLIANCE vice-president Tendai Biti’s trial on allegations of assaulting a Ukrainian woman, which was set to commence yesterday, was postponed to June 9, 2021 because his lawyer was committed at the High Court.
Biti appeared before magistrate Vongai Guwuriro on allegations that he assaulted Tatiana Aleshina, after an altercation at the Harare Magistrates Court in December last year.
His lawyer, Alec Muchadehama applied for the postponement of the matter on the basis that he needed more time to go through the State papers he had received yesterday and that he had other commitments at the higher court.
Aleshina is a witness in a matter pending at the courts which involves businessman Georgios Katsimberirs, who is Biti’s client.
