President Emmerson Mnangagwa's lawyer Tinomuda Chinyoka is suing Gweru lawyer Brian Dube for defamation.

Chinyoka claims Dube falsely accused him of assaulting him inside a court building on Monday.

In a claim filed on Wednesday, Chinyoka demands US$308,083 as defamation damages and US$2,460,010 for "injurious falsehood".

Those curious two amounts are connected to results of the last Presidential elections as released by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, one being Mnangagwa's total tally and the other being the difference in his total votes and those of closest rival Nelson Chamisa.
