As part of her bail conditions, Charumbira was ordered not to visit her workplace or any City of Harare premises for a month and to continue residing at her given address.

She was also ordered to report once every Friday at Highlands police station and not interfere with state witnesses.

The State led by Mr George Manokore had opposed bail, saying the accused person was a flight risk and that she was likely to interfere with witnesses.

Charumbira’s lawyer professor Lovemore Madhuku argued that the state had not placed compelling reasons as to why bail was being opposed.

He said the charges against his client were not serious.

Mrs Makwande deferred the matter to November 28 for routine remand. The Herald
