Update: Top Commissioner Erasmus Makodza Granted Bail:

In an update from the courts, Commissioner Erasmus Makodza, accused of corruptly concealing a transaction from a principal, was today freed on $10 000 bail when he appeared at the Harare Magistrates’ Court.

According to a local publication The Herald, Harare regional magistrate Mr Stanley Mambanje also ordered him to report once a month and not interfere with witnesses. He remanded him to March 2.

Mrs Netsai Mushayabasa represented the State while lawyer Mr Tapiwa Makanza represented Makodza.

Commissioner Makodza is being charged for a crime he allegedly committed while he was the Commanding Officer of Mashonaland East Province in 2019.

Meanwhile, in a separate development, a Chitungwiza land baron, Dr Fredrick Mabamba of United Westand Housing Cooperative has been arrested by the anti-corruption hawks today.

Mabamba was arrested on allegations related to illegal parcelling out of residential stands all over Chitungwiza.

According to police sources, he was apprehended at his Town Centre offices following a witch-hunting visit by a high powered Government delegation that toured Chitungwiza and Budiriro 5B last weekend.

Last year Mabamba caused a stir after trying to block Chitungwiza Municipality from constructing its Civic Centre on State land claiming the land belonged to him.
