Harare West MP and MDC member Joanna Mamombe has been released on bail. She was remanded to June 25. The MDC party has said that Mamombwe was arrested on Tuesday evening charged with Electoral Act violations.
Speaking to ZimLive, MDC spokesman Jacob Mafume said:
She is accused of providing a false address to the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission before elections last July.
This year alone, Mamombe has been arrested twice. The MDC’s youngest MP at age 26 is currently on bail on treason charges emanating from violent protests against fuel price increases decreed by President Emmerson Mnangagwa earlier this year. Prosecutors say she planned to overthrow the government.
