Joana Mamombe violates bail conditions, again

MDC-Alliance legislator Joana Mamombe allegedly skipped her bail reporting conditions on August 27 and the State wants her remanded in custody pending her trial.

The State, led by Michael Reza, has since applied for revocation of her bail conditions when she appeared before Harare regional magistrate Stanford Mambanje today.

Mamombe is said to have violated bail conditions imposed against her in a matter she is jointly charged with two Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova for violating the Covid-19 national lockdown regulations.

According to the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) whose lawyers are representing her, Joana failed to report on Friday after returning to Harare from her rural areas after 6:PM. The lawyers said she could not make it during the stipulated time since the curfew was now in operation.

ZLHR said she eventually reported at Harare Central Police Station at 9:AM on Saturday, where police officers insisted that she should have presented herself on Friday.

Mamombe is being represented by lawyer Jeremiah Bamu of the ZLHR.

The State will continue with the application this afternoon.
