Registrar General Clemence Masango has this Friday been granted $10,000 bail when he appeared in court facing criminal abuse of office charges after he flouted tender procedures in purchase of five service vehicles.
Masango was arrested on Thursday last week to assist with investigations and has been in police custody since then.
His arrest followed a government-commissioned forensic audit and Zimbabwe Anri Corruption Commission (Zacc) investigations instituted last week.
Reports suggested that police immediately impounded two of the vehicles pending further investigations.
A number of senior government officials, former and current, have so far been arrested or accused of engaging in underhand dealings that have robbed the country of millions of United States dollars.
