Harare Magistrate Josephine Sunde will pass judgement on the application for discharge lodged by former minister Saviour Kasukuwere on Wednesday (tomorrow).
The court conducted an inspection in loco at Kasukuwere’s lofty mansion in Harare where Kasukuwere narrated the events leading to his escape from the country.
The house was riddled with bullet holes which according to Kasukuwere were fired at his family in November last year.
The court’s visit sought to establish the truthfulness of his assertion that he had fled the country using an undesignated route as his life was under threat.
A number of what appears to be bullet holes were on the perimeter wall while several shell casings of an AK 47 assault rifle rounds were discovered at the scene.
The inspection in loco came after state prosecutor Mrs Francisca Mukumbiri maintained that Kasukuwere has a case to answer.
It remains to be seen whether the state will maintain its stance following the inspection in loco.
Kasukuwere applied for discharge at the close of the state case on the basis that he used an undesignated port of exist fearing for his life, hence he qualified to have been given refugee status.
