Mzembi Arrested Again, Passport Withheld

Former Foreign Affairs Minister Walter Mzembi yesterday unsuccessfully pleaded with the magistrates’ court to release his passport so that he can travel to South Africa for a business trip.

Mzembi applied for temporary release of his passport on Monday indicating that he was going to return it to the clerk of court on his return from South Africa on February 19. However, magistrate Rumbidzayi Mugwagwa, said she will deliver her ruling on the application on February 16 after the state, led by Michael Reza, challenged the application on the basis that Mzembi was facing new charges. Through his lawyer Job Sikhala, Mzembi challenged the State to produce evidence of the new criminal charges.

When he arrived at Rotten Row Magistrate court, Mzembi was in the company of his lawyer Job Sikhala and Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) officers who said they were going to hand him over to the police after court proceedings.
