Former cabinet minister Ignatius Chombo’s application for variation of bail conditions has been upheld by a Harare magistrate.
Harare magistrate Ms Josephine Sande granted the application sought by Chombo who will now report once every week between Monday and Friday.
Through his lawyer Professor Lovemore Madhuku, Chombo raised new facts which had arisen since his arrest last month on a litany of corruption charges.
He said his original reporting conditions where he reports thrice daily throughout the week was no longer tenable as he is a family man who since the loss of his government and political office now relies on farming for his family sustenance.
Professor Madhuku had successfully sought a review of Chombo’s reporting conditions to once a day between Monday and Friday.
