Former Tourism Minister Prisca Mupfumira who is currently facing Corruption charges has once again been denied bail by the High court. She was further remanded in custody to September 28.
But in her bail submissions, through her lawyer Advocate Lewis Uriri, instructed by Chinyama and Partners, Mupfumira maintained that the evidence of the State
against her was weak, adding “it is fanciful and porous”.
Her application was opposed by prosecutor Sharon Fero, who told the court that there was overwhelming evidence against her and also said she was likely to abscond in the event that the court admitted her to bail. Fero further told the court that the State had also faced some difficulties in arresting her since she kept evading the police and that she has a personal CBZ. Bank account with numbers, in which monies from suspicious transactions were directly deposited into.
In his submissions, Uriri had urged the court not to lose sight of the fact that Mupfumira did not try to flee the jurisdiction of the local courts, even though she had prior knowledge of the investigations that were being conducted against her. His submissions, however, did not find favour with the judge.
