Chombo woes continue as bail ruling postponed, again

A HARARE magistrate has again postponed bail ruling on former Cabinet Minister Ignatius Morgan Chombo who has been in remand prison since Monday.

Chombo was arrested on allegations of illegally parcelling pieces of land in Harare and Zvimba Rural District Council during his tenure of office as Local Government Minister between 2000 and 2015.

He will spend another night in custody after Harare regional magistrate Stanford Mambanje deferred his matter to tomorrow for bail ruling.

Mambanje was supposed to hand down the ruling this Thursday after he had postponed it to today when Chombo appeared in court on Wednesday.

Mambanje said he was still going through the bail submissions.

Chombo is charged with fraud and five counts of criminal abuse of office.

He was arrested by the Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) on Monday in connection with the Uchena Land Commission Report.

Chombo is being represented by Professor Lovemore Madhuku,
Tungamirai Muganhiri and Munyaradzi Bwanya. 🔺
