Zimbabwe's ousted finance minister Ignatius Chombo in court for bail hearing

Zimbabwe's ousted finance minister Ignatius Chombo in court for bail hearing

Zimbabwe's finance minister, Ignatious Chombo has appeared in court to face corruption charges that some observers believe are politically motivated after the resignation of Robert Mugabe.

The former finance minister was an ally of Grace Mugabe and many will read a dire warning into how he's being treated now. Chombo's lawyer says he was admitted to hospital with injuries sustained from beatings he received in military custody.

The former university lecturer was interior minister before his October promotion.

Prosecutors, however, charged that Brown's motive was robbery, given that she took money and two of his guns after she shot him. Brown has been described as a model inmate, and while in prison has received her G.E.D and associate's degree.

Some supporters of the new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, have been calling for unspecified action against the so-called G40 group that backed Mugabe and his wife.

He was not asked to enter a plea by the state.

He is charged with breaching the Prevention of Corruption Act, criminal abuse of office and fraud. The court ordered Chombo detained until Monday when his bail application will be heard.
