How the mighty have fallen is a statement which would describe the predicament of embattled ex finance minister Dr. Ignatius Chombo who is currently standing trial for a slew of charges against him including corruption and abuse of office.
Chombo was denied bail earlier today by the magistrate who considered him a flight risk meaning he had to go back in remand at Chikurubi maximum prison until the 8th of December. It was quite a sad sight seeing a besuited Chombo in leg irons being shepherded back to prison.
Chombo was among the criminals around president Mugabe who were being targeted by the army in their Operation Restore Legacy.
