MDC Alliance duo granted $10,000 bail each

Justice Webster Chinamora has ordered release of MDC Alliance duo Joana Mamombe and Cecilia Chimbiri on $10,000 bail each after hearing arguments by lawyers and NPA.

The judge set aside refusal of bail by magistrate Stanford Mambanje.

The two women had been held for 8 days accused of undermining the authority of the police, this after a traffic light incident where they allegedly shouted at police officers who had detained protesters to let them go before infecting them with Covid-19.

The duo was arrested last week after they allegedly staged a flash protest and insulted police officers in Harare.
