The State had agreed that Rushwaya be ordered to surrender title deeds to her lawyer Mr Tapson Dzvetero’s No. 709 Crowhill Estate, Borrowdale in Harare.

Mr Dzetero had also agreed to the proposed bail conditions and demanded that trial kicks off when they return to court on November 13.

Rushwaya was quick to demand a trial date saying:

“The accused wishes to clear her name and have the trial commences. I am advised that the State completed its investigations and we hope that on the next remand date, November 13, trial commences,” said Mr Dzvetero.-ZBC
