Patrick Chinamasa appointed as Zimbabwe's acting finance minister

FORMER Finance minister Ignatius Chombo was sent back to remand prison Monday after his bail application was turned down by a Harare magistrate.

Edmore Nyazamba, for the State, argued that Chombo was likely to interfere with investigations, could be harmed by the public, which he said was angry over the minister's graft charges, and that he was also a flight risk.

The lawyers of Mr Chombo who alleged he was beaten while in custody, immediately stated their wish to launch an appeal against the ruling.

Deposed Zanu PF national youth league leader Kudzanayi Chipanga was also denied bail on the same grounds when he separately appeared before magistrate Josephine Sande.

They come after a military operation led to Mugabe's resignation last Tuesday, ending his almost four decades in power.

Earlier, he told a packed courtroom that Chombo, who sat impassively throughout the hearing, would deny the charges at his trial and had documentary evidence showing the allegations had no basis.

Some Mnangagwa supporters have called for unspecified action against G40 but the president has urged citizens not to undertake any form of "vengeful retribution".

Court heard that they were abducted by unidentified men in military uniforms and spent days in detention before being handed over to the police last Friday.

A former university lecturer and Mugabe ally, Chombo was promoted in an October cabinet reshuffle from the interior ministry to the finance portfolio.

Zimbabwe is struggling with a severe shortage of the USA dollars it uses instead of its own currency.
