Jailed former Bikita west legislator Munyaradzi Kereke has petitioned Prosecutor General (PG) Kumbirai Kodzi seeking the immediate removal of Mr Charles Warara as the private prosecutor in his cases.
Kereke is not resting in his fight for freedom, maintaining that his arrest, sentence and conviction were politically motivated.
He has already petitioned the Judicial Services Commission, Chief Justice Luke Malaba and this morning he wrote an urgent request to the PG to remove Warara from prosecuting his Supreme Court appeal and his bail application.
Kereke appealed to the PG to invoke Section 20 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act Chapter 9:07 to remove Mr Warara from acting as private prosecutor as his continuation in the matters defeats the course of justice.
In an interesting twist, Kereke alleges that Mr Warara is a suspect for alleged sexual abuse of the same complainants whom he purports to fight for.
He attaches a letter of complaint against Mr Warara to the Law Society written on 22 August 2012 by the minor children’s maternal grandparents in which they were accusing him of abusing the minors.
Secondly, Kereke accuses Warara of nailing him for political reasons as evidenced by a High Court letter in which Warara allegedly informed the court to deny him bail because he belonged to the lacoste political faction.
Kereke further accuses Warara of misleading the High Court that the new administration and the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) had illegally reduced his prison sentence by 49 months and declassified him from a dangerous prisoner to a ‘C’ class prisoner.
He also says the Zimbabwe Republic Police opened a case in respect of these falsehoods while the ZPCS dismissed the lies.
Kereke contends that Mr Warara further lied that the ZPCS had illegally transferred him to an open prison and he was seeing him at home out of prison, a statement which he denies.
