MASVINGO — A 26-year-old Masvingo man recently landed himself in trouble after he allegedly used President Robert Mugabe’s campaign poster as toilet paper.
Takura Mufumisi appeared at the Masvingo Magistrates’ Courts last week charged with violating the Electoral Act or, alternatively, destruction of political material.
Public prosecutor Mukai Mutumbe told the court that on July 24 this year, Mufumusi entered Landmark Bar in the city with the intention to relieve himself in the bar toilets.
While inside, he was spotted by the informant, Osman Musengi, tearing up Mugabe’s poster which he found inside and allegedly using it as toilet paper.
Musengi immediately effected a citizen’s arrest on Mufumusi and took him to Masvingo Central Police Station.
Court papers, however, do not state if Mufumusi was arrested after he had already relieved himself.
Magistrate Tinashe Ndokera adjourned the matter indefinitely as the State could not identify the witness.
