Prophet Magaya's docket still at the Prosecutor General's office

Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader Walter Magaya, yesterday said the State's continued failure to provide him with a trial date was disheartening and causing him anxiety.

The prosecutor Mr Sebastian Mutizirwa sought another postponement, citing that although investigations were complete, Magaya's docket was still at the Prosecutor General's office.

"We indicated last time that the docket was to be sent back to the police for further management," said Mr Mutizirwa.

"Investigations are complete and yesterday (Thursday), the docket was sent to the Prosecutor General's office for perusal."

In response, Magaya's lawyer Mr Admire Rubaya said State's approach to the matter was so disheartening.

"Accused is tempted not to trust the State.

"They made a promise that investigations would be complete by October 15," said Mr Rubaya.

"They made another promise that investigations would be complete at least today (yesterday). Further remands create anxiety to an accused person, more so when one is facing rape."

In his ruling Harare magistrate Mr Vakayi Chikwekwe, said it was worrisome whether State investigates to arrest or arrests to investigate.

The matter was remanded to November 15. Magaya was represented by Messrs Rubaya, Everson Chatambudza and Oliver Marwa.

He is accused of raping a 25-year-old congregant.
