HARARE – Suspended Harare Mayor who was on Friday granted bail failed to appear in court today as he is self-isolating following his contact with positive Covid-19 cases while in custody.
Mafume’s lawyer Tendai Biti told the court that his client was in isolation, adding that three inmates who shared the cell with Mafume had died of Covid-19.
However, the State is seeking to revoke his bail.
“Despite being granted bail by the High Court the State is now seeking to revoke that bail on the same nefarious charges that Jacob interferes with a witness. State actions are malicious & vindictive. Mafume is however in Covid19 quarantine and matter has been remanded to 23/01/21,” said the MDC Alliance in a statement.
