via Update:Zanu PF MP Wadyajena off the hook – NewsDay Zimbabwe January 12, 2016
ZANU PF’s Gokwe-Nembudziya MP Justice Mayor Wadyajena had his charges of criminally insulting First Lady Grace Mugabe and fellow party member and Kadoma businessman Jimayi Muduvuri withdrawn before plea today.
The charges were withdrawn after his lawyer Givemore Muvhiringi successfully applied against further remand.
“We had made an application for refusal of remand on the basis that the charge in question was unconstitutional. The court agreed with us so they said he won’t be prosecuted. The court ruled that they can proceed to charge him for disorderly conduct,” he said.
“The aspect of insulting the First Lady is no longer there,” Muvhiringi said.
Muvhiringi said Wadyajena will now appear in court on February 1 for disorderly conduct.
The youthful Midlands legislator was arrested during the party’s national conference in the resort town last month.
