Former Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo appeared in court yesterday together with former Zanu-PF youth leaders Kudzanai Chipanga and Innocent Hamandishe for wearing party regalia emblazoned with President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s initials.
The trio, who are facing criminal nuisance charges, appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Rumbidzai Mugwagwa who remanded them to February 8. Matthew Mleya, who is also facing the same charges, was remanded to the same date.
The State alleges that between December 8 and 13 last year, the quartet connived to pose in Zanu-PF regalia yet they are expelled members of the party. It is alleged that they took photographs of themselves wearing headgear (caps) inscribed “ED” and “Kutonga Kwaro” and an embroidered Zanu-PF flag.
