Zanu PF MP denied bail after being caught with live pangolin

Zanu PF MP for Nyanga North Hubert Nyanhongo was placed in remand prison and denied bail by a Chipinge Magistrate Noah Gwatidzo. He was advised to apply for bail at the High Court after he was found in possession of a live pangolin in his Jeep Cherokee SUV.

Nyanhongo (60) was arrested on Saturday by officials from the Parks and Wildlife Department at Birchenough. This followed a tip-off by a Save Conservancy worker who disguised himself as a potential buyer of the endangered animal.

The other suspects, Samuel Samson (42), Misheck Satuku (47) and Positive Mutenda (29), appeared before Mr Noah Gwatidzo on Monday and were remanded in custody to April 20.
