ZIMBABWE Electoral Commission boss Justice Priscilla Chigumba is set to appear in court to testify against Night Tawona Shadaya who is answering to charges of criminal insult.

The trial was set to commence yesterday after the ruling by Harare magistrate Rumbidzai Mugwagwa allowing Shadaya to change his plea to not guilty as he is now being represented by lawyers from Zimbabwe Human Rights Lawyers.

However, the State led by Peter Kachirika, indicated that the investigating officer failed to deliver the subpoenas to Chigumba so the new trial date has been set for November 20.

It is the State case that Shadaya retweeted a tweet from a Twitter account which was purpoted to be owned by Justice Chigumba.

The Tweet read, 'I can't wait for the election fiasco to come to an end. I could do with a holiday and some good sex, my body needs a break'

According to the State, the tweet seriously impaired the dignity of Chigumba.
