THE five Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) executive members accused of undermining the authority of President Mugabe, were yesterday removed from remand by a Harare magistrate who ruled that the State’s house was in shambles.

Regional magistrate Mr Hoseah Mujaya, dismissed the State’s application for further postponement of the matter that was due for trial.

“The State is not ready for trial therefore I am declining further remand. If the State puts its house in order, they will summon you if need be,” he said.

Douglas Mahiya is jointly charged with Francis Nhando, Victor Matemadanda, Headman Moyo and Hoyini Samuel Bhila and their trial was scheduled to commence on Tuesday but was postponed to yesterday after the State successfully sought a postponement.
