Zimbabwe People’s Front political party leader Owen Kuchata (34) who tried to petrol-bomb the First Family’s Alpha Omega Dairy farm in Mazowe, will be sentenced tomorrow after he dramatically changed his plea of not guilty to guilty.

On Friday last week, Kuchata was brought before regional magistrate Mr Hoseah Mujaya for plea recording and pleaded guilty to wanting to petrol bomb the First Family’s dairy.

He said it was his idea to commit the offence.

Kuchata later took exception to the charge of terrorism and changed his plea to not guilty after arguing that Alpha Omega Dairy was not a Government property, but President Mugabe’s private property.

Prosecutor Mr Michael Reza maintained that terrorism charges were appropriate, saying the attack was not targeted at the dairy as an outfit, but at the office of the Presidency of Zimbabwe.

    Isn’t it wonderful that any crime against Zanu can get solved and prosecuted within two minutes but murders committed by them have never got to court!
