High Court judge Justice Tawanda Chitapi has granted MDC Alliance’s Harare West legislator Joana Mamombe and party activist Cecilia Chimbiri $20 000 bail each.
The two had spent almost two months at Chikurubi Maximum prison facing charges of contravening Covid-19 regulations after addressing a press conference in front of the Harare Magistrates’ Court last month.
The address was meant to demand the release of jailed activist Makomborero Haruzivishe.
“Our lawyers have ended thetwo2 month long detention of Joana Mamombe and Cecilia Chimbiri by getting RTGS$20 000 bail. They have been ordered not to address a gathering of more than 50 people,” the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) said. Nhau/Indaba
