HARARE – Director of Epidemiology and Disease Control (ECD) in the Ministry of Health Dr Portia Manangazira was denied bail following her arrest on allegations of criminal abuse of office.
This follows reports that she misappropriated resources meant for training community health workers engaged in Covid-19 awareness programmes around the country.
The State also alleges that Dr Manangazira recruited 28 relatives including his father to conduct the awareness campaigns and they would benefit from the US$796.675.00 and fuel that she is being accused of misappropriating.
She was denied bail today on fears that she will tamper with witnesses.
