Harare-Health Minister Obadiah Moyo who was arrested yesterday on allegations of abuse of office was today granted a $50 000 bail.
Moyo appeared before Chief Magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi facing three criminal abuse of office charges.
The charges emanate from the illegal procurement of Covid-19 drugs and equipment through a dubious company, Drax International.
Appearing for the State prosecutor Clemence Chimbari told the court that the state had no compelling reasons to oppose bail.
“State has no compelling reasons to deny the accused bail. Should this find favour with the court. We suggest the following conditions, that he deposit $50 000 with the Clerk of Court as bail, to continue residing at his given address until the matter is finalised, that he reports three times a week, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday at ZACC (Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission), that he surrenders his passport, not to interfere with witnesses or investigations” said Chimbari
Moyo was represented by James Mutizwa and George Chaga from Chihambakwe and Mutizwa Legal practitioners and will be back in court on 31 July 2020.
Delish Nguwaya, the country representative for Drax International is in remand prison after he was denied bail at the magistrates’ courts on Monday.
