Harare West MP Joana Mamombe and activist Cecilia Chimbiri have been denied bail on appeal following their latest arrest on charges of holding prohibited gathering (press conference) under Covid-19 lockdown regulations.
High Court judge, Justice Tawanda Chitapi said it is not in the interest of justice to grant them bail.
Justice Chitapi said he agrees with Magistrate Muchuchutu-Guwuriro that there are compelling reasons to deny the duo bail.
Justice Chitapi said Takudzwa Ngadziore’s ruling will be delivered on Friday.
