HARARE – Ex-Zanu PF youth leader Kudzanai Chipanga will be allowed to tend
to his farm business in Makoni in Manicaland as he waits trial for
slandering Vice President Constantino Chiwenga at a press conference last
year.

Yesterday, Harare magistrate Tilda Mazhande altered bail conditions which
his legal team said were “too stringent.”

Chipanga, who is out on $500 bail, has been reporting twice a day at
Borrowdale Police Station.

Through his lawyer Lovemore Madhuku, he asked to have his reporting
conditions revised to once a week.

Prosecutor Edmore Nyazamba did not object to Chipanga’s application
Magistrate Mazhande resolved to relax Chipanga’s bail conditions so that
he reports only twice a week at Borrowdale Police Station.

Madhuku had argued: “The applicant is only person in the country that is
still on stringent bail conditions (from the November military
intervention).

“He is religiously reporting twice a day everyday despite that he is not a
Harare person.  He is now a full time farmer in Makoni District,
Manicaland.”

Madhuku added that Chipanga had constitutional rights to keep his life
intact and fend for his family. The matter was remanded to April 6.
