JUST IN: MDC MP Joana Mamombe Granted $3,000 Bail

MDC Alliance member of the House of Assembly for Harare West, Joana Mamombe, has been granted $3,000 bail by the High Court of Zimbabwe.

Mamombe (25) was arrested last Saturday and was charged with subversion.

Mamombe who is facing subversion charges was then placed on remand pending trial. The magistrates court ruled that the facts as outlined by the State disclosed an offence.

She is accused inciting protesters in January who went on to loot private businesses and destroy property worth millions of dollars.

Detectives swooped on the youngest member of the current session of Parliament on Saturday morning as she was attending a Parliamentary workshop in Nyanga.

Meanwhile, fellow MDC Alliance legislator Chalton Hwende has also been released on $3,000 bail by the High Court. Hwende, who was released earlier today, was further ordered not to address public gatherings or use social media.
