Zimbabwe Tourism Minister Prisca Mupfumira will spend another night behind bars after she was denied bail by Acting Chief Magistrate, Munamato Mutevedzi this Friday.
Mupfumira, who is facing seven counts of alleged criminal abuse of office as a public officer, was arrested on Thursday by Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) officials.
Mupfumira’s defence lawyers, represented by Charles Chinyama, argued that their client has the right to bail.
In opposing the bail application, Chief Prosecutor, Michael Reza argued that the Prosecutor General feels that the amount involved, $95 million, is a huge prejudice to the nation.
The matter will return to court tomorrow (Saturday) for bail ruling.
