Joana Mamombe granted bail

MDC Alliance  MP for Harare West, Joanah Mamombe and party activist Cecilia Chimbiri, who are facing charges of undermining the authority of the police were yesterday granted $10 000 bail each by High Court judge Justice Webster Chinamhora.

The duo’s bail hearing was initially postponed on Monday after State prosecutors applied for more time to file a response to their submissions.

The youthful activists were denied bail by magistrate Stanford Mambanje last week. It is alleged that the pair distracted police officers who were enforcing COVID-19 regulations by shouting obscenities at them near the new Government complex.
