Fired Zanu-PF youth leader Kudzanayi Chipanga, who is facing charges of making statements undermining public confidence in the military, has been granted bail pending trial.

His lawyer Professor Lovemore Madhuku successfully appealed for his release before High Court judge Justice Edith Mushore.

Justice Mushore ordered Chipanga to deposit $500 bail with the Clerk of Court at Harare magistrates’ Courts, coupled with stringent conditions.

He is required to report twice a day at Borrowdale Police Station and to reside at the given address until the matter is finalised.

Chipanga is further required to surrender travel documents and not to interfere with State witnesses.

Justice Mushore will deliver the ruling in the bail appeal by former Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo at 5pm today on a litany of corruption charges he is facing.

Prof Madhuku is also acting for Chombo, while Law Officer Mr Eddie Nyazamba is appearing for the State.

    Chombo may have cases to answer but Chipanga has not committed a criminal offence requiring such treatment as he got.
    This seems to be a case of targeting him for his accusation on Chiwenga & which makes it a civil case than a state case.
    We do not want a Zimbabwe where state resources & laws are abused to punish people for personal or political reasons as is clearly the case here.
    Ndini dadaro. Come arrest me too….if you can.

      “We do not want a Zimbabwe where state resources & laws are abused to punish people for personal or political reasons”
      This is how Zimbabwe has always been under the ZANU-PF rule. State resources are used to settle personal scores

    The rise and fall of Chipanga. The 3 most powerful individuals in ZANU PF had become Grace,Chipanga and then Mugabe. He had become so powerful that he would ask the vps to simply make slogans and then sit down while Gire would be given time to attack her opponents while Chipanga and his youth leaders acted as cheerleaders. Now he is languishing in remand prison while the former first family he was boot licking is free to enjoy it’s ill gotten wealth. Having said all this,i believe the charges against this young man are bogus. Simon K Moyo. Also made statements accusing General Chiwenga of make a treasonous statement when he warned the military wouldn’t hesitate to step in and stabilize the political situation. Rather than being arrested as well,he was given a cabinet position. Why the double standards?

      There is no fall. Chipanga used his ZANU connection to enrich himself. Kamfana hakana O level but he’s living it up kuma dale dale.
