He was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare Magistrate Stanford Mambanje Saturday.

The magistrate remanded Gomba in custody to Monday next week for his bail hearing.

The MDC Alliance official was initially arrested in July last year on allegations of criminal abuse of office.

He was accused of illegally selling the City of Harare residential stands.

On the latest charge, Gomba is accused of illegally creating commercial stands inside Old Hararians Sports Club open space in Milton Park.

Gomba is alleged to have connived with Wellington Mutambirwa, a City of Harare evaluation executive to cause the creation of commercial stands at the open space at the Old Hararians Sports Club.

It is further alleged that the stands were for a proposed crèche, medical centre, recreational facilities, market place and fuel service station.

Gomba was reportedly among several senior council officials working in his office who were set to benefit from the stands scam.

The crimes were reportedly committed during the period extending from 2018 to 2020 when Gomba was the Harare mayor and Glen Norah councillor.
