‘Only one doctor examined Joana Mamombe’
MDC Alliance Member of Parliament for Harare West Joana Mamombe will have to be examined by another doctor before her trial on allegations of faking abduction, together with Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marowa, can
Mamombe was a fortnight ago remanded into the custody of prisons for her to be examined after questions were raised over her mental capacity.
She was only released from prison on Wednesday after the intervention of the High Court. Yesterday, she was back in court and it emerged she has only been examined by one doctor.
Regional magistrate Bianca Makwande ordered that she be examined by the second doctor as per the order she gave and that by October 22 when they return, she must have been examined.
The defence said they will avail Mamombe for the examination. The results on the mental examination, according to the State, are important to determine the course the matter will take.
