Farai Dziva|Zimbabwe Miners Federation president, Henrietta Rushwaya’s gold smuggling scam has taken a dramatic turn.

Rushwaya was arrested at Robert Mugabe International after she was caught with 6 kilograms of gold.

According to the State, the net is wider than earlier thought, hence the decision to withdraw the consent to bail.

There were other personnel involved in the gold smuggling scam.

This is a classic example of organised crime, in the manner in which the execution of the offence was carried out, according to court papers.

As such, the onus to demonstrate that there are compelling reasons in denying the accused person bail lies with the State.
