Through her lawyer, Ms Beatrice Mtetwa, Mubaiwa told the court that she was not ready to stand trial today because of ill-health.

Mubaiwa told Harare Regional Magistrate Mrs Marehwanazvo Gofa that she was taking heavy medication and was not mentally fit to comprehend court proceedings.

She, therefore, sought for postponement of her matter to another date when she gets fit.

The State led by Mr Charles Muchemwa and Mrs Netsai Mushayabasa opposed to the application for postponement.
