Magistrate Defers Decision To Give Supa Mandiwanzira His Passport

A Harare Magistrate has deferred the decision to lease a passport to the legislator and former minister Supa Mandiwanzira, who is facing charges of criminal abuse of office. Prosecutors argued against Mandiwanzira’s application to have his bail conditions relaxed citing a flight risk.

Mandiwanzira’s lawyers requested the relaxation of bail conditions to enable the former minister and entrepreneur to travel to China for business. The lawyers offered to put up a home property worth $100,000 as surety. Another property worth 100,000 has already been submitted as surety.

Mandiwanzira’s charges are that he:

  • Engaged a South African company Megawatt to do consultancy work for NetOne outside set procedures
  • Appointed his allegedly unqualified personal assistant to the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (Potraz) board.

The decision will be granted next week.

  1. A very thorough, consistent and not selective-targeted censorship of the officials from the First Republic and part which is now in the second republic is very necessary and long overdue……such that if then this is not the approach justice is far from being dispensed and you would rather acquit this man and award him his documents.
