Lawyer Mr Tungamirai Chamutsa applied for bail again on changed circumstances, telling the court that Chinyamakobvu needed to undertake preparations to represent Zimbabwe at the International Hackathon competition in Switzerland.
Mr Chamutsa argued that Chinyamakobvu was not a flight risk as the State was catering for his travel expenses and stay in Switzerland.
Chinyamakobvu who is facing 8 charges of hacking and is out on $150 bail reportedly altered the results of some of his colleagues and charged them for his services.
