Former Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo was yesterday issued with a warrant of arrest by a Harare magistrate after he failed to attend court. Chombo is reportedly ill.
He is accused of wearing Zanu-PF regalia without authority and his trial was moved to February 1. Harare magistrate Hosea Mujaya said some people were defaulting courts willingly and plead for an administrative warrant. Mujaya said there is nothing called an administrative warrant of arrest.
Chombo and his accomplices, Kudzanai Chipanga and Innocent Hamandishe, allegedly posted pictures of themselves on social media wearing Zanu-PF regalia with President Mnangagwa’s initials and the ruling party’s flag despite having been expelled from the party.
