He is granted bail of E15 000 by High Court

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Rep­re­sented by se­nior at­tor­ney Sipho Gumedze, Ts­abedze yes­ter­day filed an ur­gent ap­pli­ca­tion for bail at the High Court. Although he was not present in court af­ter be­ing ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal, Judge Doris Tsha­bal­ala granted him bail fixed at E15 000. How­ever, the court or­dered that he shall pay E3 000 in cash and E12 000 shall be in a form of a surety since the Crown rep­re­sented by pros­e­cut­ing coun­sel Nol­wazi Ma­bila did not op­pose the bail ap­pli­ca­tion.


When the court was sup­posed to read the bail con­di­tions, Gumedze sub­mit­ted that the accused per­son was not present in court since he had been ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal. “My Lady, may I state that the ap­pli­cant is not be­fore court since he has been ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal,” Gumede sub­mit­ted. By the time this re­port was com­piled yes­ter­day af­ter­noon, Ts­abedze, through rel­a­tives, had al­ready paid the bail amount at the Govern­ment Rev­enue Of­fices and a lib­er­a­tion war­rant was is­sued by the court for the Zakhele Re­mand Cen­tre.
