‘No iota of evidence’: CCC MP Maureen Kademaunga freed after ‘attempted murder’ charges dropped

Recently sworn-in Sunningdale MP Maureen Kademaunga (CCC) walked away free on Wednesday after the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) dropped attempted murder charges against her.

Lawyer Harrison Nkomo confirmed his clients release to the media, explaining that the NPA had dropped the charges against the CCC MP because there was no evidence for the alleged crime.

“We have been here since morning, and the prosecutor general has looked at the papers and has come to a conclusion that there is no iota of evidence against Maureen Kademaunga for the alleged crime. To that end, she has been released,” Nkomo revealed.

Kademaunga, Ward 10 Councillor Clayd Mashozhera (49), and Daudi Jessub (40), were on Tuesday arrested over what their party said were trumped up charges of attempted murder and malicious damage to property.

The trio spent last night in police custody and appeared in court today.
