MDC Alliance spokesperson Fadzayi Mahere was on Monday granted $10 000 bail by Harare magistrate Trynos Utahwashe.
Mahere was arrested on 11 January this year for allegedly communicating falsehoods in a case in which a junior police officer enforcing government lockdown measures was erroneously linked to the false death of an infant in Harare.
She was ordered not to interfere with the woman, Rebecca Musariri, whose nine-month-old child is at the centre of the controversy.
Magistrate Utahwashe also ordered Mahere to reside at her given address, report to Avondale police station every Friday and surrender her passport.
Mahere was remanded to February 23.
Commenting on the latest development, MDC Alliance Treasurer-General David Coltart said Mahere should never have spent a single night in cells. 🔺
