Kudzanayi Chipanga’s application for relaxation of bail conditions failed yesterday. Magistrate. Mrs Rumbidzai Mugwagwa advised Chipanga to approach the High Court.

She said it was the High Court that had granted him bail and the same court should make a decision on the matter. Chipanga was granted $500 bail by the High Court and ordered to report twice times a day at Borrowdale Police Station until his case was finalised.

He was also ordered to surrender his travel documents and not to interfere with witnesses.

Chipanga was represented by Professor Lovemore Madhuku and wanted the court to order him to report once a week at the police station.
