Munyaradzi Kereke wants the Prosecutor General’s Office to pay legal costs incurred in his private prosecution saying he didn’t refuse a public prosecution.
Kereke was recently convicted of rape in a private prosecution after suspended Prosecutor-General Johannes Tomana refused to prosecute him, saying there was no evidence linking the legislator to the offence.
Regional magistrate Mr Noel Mupeiwa sentenced Kereke to 14 years behind bars for raping his then 11-year-old niece six years ago. Four years of the sentence were set aside for five years on condition he does not commit a similar offence within that period.
Through his lawyers, Kereke is refusing to pay legal costs sought by private prosecutor Mr Charles Warara saying he was not the one who barred his prosecution nor the one who runs the PG’s office.
