Chombo’s lawyer Tungamirai Muganhiri could neither confirm nor deny the developments, asking to be contacted today for a comment.
Chombo is among sevveral former top government officials who were arrested following the demise of former president Robert Mugabe in connection with corruption.
There are some who argue that arrests are not enough for a country that is close to the top of the list of most corrupt countries world wide. Some have even went on to suggest that these arrests were selectively targeted on G40 members.
