Video :Zimbabwe’s Ousted Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo Arrives For Bail Hearing


Zimbabwe’s former finance minister Ignatius Chombo arrived for a bail hearing at a court in Harare on Monday (November 27). He was among those detained by the military before Robert Mugabe resigned as president. On Saturday (November 25) he was charged with corruption, including trying to defraud the central bank in 2004. The ousted head of the influential ZANU-PF youth league Kudzanai Chipanga, who was a member of a group allied to Mugabe and his wife Grace, also appeared at the court for a bail hearing. Chombo, a Mugabe ally who had been promoted to finance minister in October, was arrested at his home on November 15 after the military seized power.
