Chombo Given Back His Passport

Former Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo was granted his passport for a two-week period by High Court judge Justice Foroma on Wednesday.

Chombo requested the Court to have his passport temporarily released to allow him to travel to South Africa to seek medical attention.

In granting the release of Chombo’s passport, Justice Foroma ruled:

- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.

No extra charges. - - -

The application for revival of a temporary variation of the applicant (Chombo)’s bail conditions granted in judgment No 753/19 succeeds with no order as to costs.

Accordingly, the applicant’s passport is temporarily released to him for the period March 3, 2020, to March 16, 2020. The clerk of court, Harare Magistrates’ Court, is ordered to immediately release the applicant’s passport as aforesaid to be returned on March 16, 2020.

In lieu of the release of the passport, the applicant shall surrender to the clerk of court title Deed No 6205/88 to Stand 461 Marlborough Township Extension 3, Marlborough, in the name of Nimrod Willard Chiminya and the title deed to be given back to the applicant upon return of the passport.

Chombo is facing several charges, including criminal abuse of office and violating section 4(a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act (Chapter 9:16).

He is currently out on $5 000 bail.
