ZIMBABWE’S High Court today acquitted opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai on charges of plotting to assassinate President Robert Mugabe, saying the state had failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt.
“The evidence led has not shown beyond reasonable doubt that the
re was such a request (for an assassination and a coup d’etat),” Judge President Paddington Garwe said.
Meanwhile, latest reports say that riot police went on a rampage beating MDC supporters who were celebrating in the streets of Harare. –Reuter/Staff Writer.
