The State represented by Isaac Tangwena said on Saturday, the polling day, Mpofu was walking along the road which leads to Makocheredze Primary School Polling station. She had a book on her which allegedly contained names of voters for the polling station.

Rambu who was coming from the opposite direction met the complainant and allegedly accused her of disturbing voters and tried to grab the book.

After searching for some time Rambu allegedly got the book and fondled Mpofu’s breasts before leaving.

Rambu is denying the allegations.

Mpofu reported the case to Police officers at the polling station.
