Another night behind bars for Chimombe and Mpofu

Story by Peter Chivhima

It will be another night behind bars for Harare businessmen, Mike Chimombe and Moses Mpofu who had their bail application process moved to Tuesday.

Chimombe and Mpofu appeared at the Harare Magistrates Court this Monday, but their matter was deferred to this Tuesday for continuation of bail application.

The state called the investigating officer from the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission who submitted that Chimombe and Mpofu are not good candidates for bail.

It emerged that the two have valid Chinese visas and if granted bail, they are likely to abscond trial.

The investigating officer also submitted that the accused persons misled citizens that the money they got was equivalent to US$four million, contrary to what the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission got from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe that it was supposed to be US$7 million.

The duo is facing allegations of defrauding government of seven million United States dollars in a goat Pass on Scheme after failing to deliver the goats despite receiving payment from treasury.
