MDC Chief of Staff granted bail

Abisha Nyanguwo, the MDC Chief of Staff who was arrested this week on charges of malicious damage to property has been granted $500 bail pending trial by a Gweru magistrate.

The matter was postponed to 11 May 2012.

Nyanguwo first appeared before the Gweru magistrate yesterday morning but the bail hearing could not take off as there were no State witnesses. A police officer, Archford Tumbare who is based in Zhombe was then sought at the last minute to give evidence against Nyanguwo.

The policeman claimed he had seen Nyanguwo's vehicle in Mvuma collecting explosives before going to Gweru where he ostensibly planted these at the Zanu PF offices resulting in it blowing up in December last year. The policeman did not report what he had seen to anybody until this week.
