Former Harare mayor Herbert Gomba has arrived at the Harare Magistrates Court to face charges of perjury and contravening section 37 (2) (e) of the Electoral Act Chapter 2:13.

He was arrested Sunday.

Charges relate to using his father’s address when registering as a voter.

It is alleged that apart from registering 19 people at his parents’ home in the high-density suburb of Glen Norah, the former Harare mayor, who is also dogged by corruption allegations, is also accused of registering as a voter using an address where he does not live.
