Godfrey Chimombe is the Mashonaland Central provincial chairperson of the MDC-T and also the co-chairman of the Joint Monitoring and Implementation Committee. But once again this outspoken critic of the regime has got himself into trouble.

While addressing a rally earlier this year in Mt. Darwin police allege he told the hundreds of MDC-T supporters gathered there that Joice Mujuru was responsible for the death of her husband.

The MDC-T claim that Chimombe was at the rally, but did not address the crowd.

But now he has been fined $300 by a Bindura magistrate who ruled that he was guilty of making false statements. His 6 months jail sentence was suspended on condition that he commits no further offences.

General Solomon Mujuru’s death remains a mystery after his charred remains were found in his farm house.
