Judge visits critically ill MDC member in prison hospital
Monday, 16 July 2012 10:42
The accused members’ trial was set to resume this morning but failed after the defence lawyers made an application for Nyamadzawo to be transferred to a private hospital where he will be able to receive better treatment. The officer-in-charge of Harare Remand Prison said the transfer of Nyamadzawo to a private hospital can only be done if the court authorised them to do so.
The State led by Prosecutor Edmore Nyazamba is opposing the application for Nyamadzawo to seek medical attention at a private hospital.
This morning, Nyamadzawo failed to appear in court following recommendations from doctors at Harare Central Prison hospital who said he condition was not safe for him to travel to court. Justice Bhunu is expected to make a ruling on the application this afternoon after visiting Nyamadzawo in hospital.
