BINDURA Rural District Council Chief Executive Officer Dr Savie Munoriarwa who was arrested this Wednesday on allegations of corruption and abuse of office has been granted 10 000 Zimbabwe dollars bail.
Munoriarwa was suspended by Bindura Rural District Council in February after allegedly abusing devolution funds and converting council resources to her own use.
Prosecutor Clement Kuwanda told the court that from July to December last year, the accused evaded tender procedures to procure equipment on three occasions.
Further allegations are that she converted to her own use properties worth 121 720 Zimbabwe dollars which led to her arrest.
She is expected back in court on the 4th of next month.
