By Staff Writer

SON to top Zanu PF politicians , Neville Mutsvangwa , who is facing several criminal charges including money laundering and dealing in foreign currency was been denied bail Monday and will be back in court after a fortnight.

Mutsvangwa is jointly charged with Simbarashe Tichingana and Ellis Majachani appeared before Harare magistrate David Mangosi.

He also faces another charge of breaching the Telecommunications Act.
In passing his ruling, the magistrate noted that it is on record that Mutsvangwa has free funds and this supported by the fact that he is a son of a minister might induce him to flee the court’s jurisdiction.

“Accused is a minister’s son and has connections and can sustain a livelihood outside the country.The court finds that if granted bail, the accused may flee because they are a flight risk, hence bail denied,” he ruled.

The state had opposed bail, submitting that Mutsvangwa was difficult to arrest after he blocked the police for hours only to be found hiding behind bags of rubbish after the officers forced their way in.

Prosecutor Thomas Chanakira also told the court that there was already overwhelming evidence against the three.

He said they are facing very serious offences and face up to 25 years if convicted.

Meanwhile despite the matter being under sub-judice activist Kerina Mujati has jolted to celebrate the arrests on X in a shockingly sensationalised thread.

“The 30th of May is too early because you found Neville with an Estonian ID , many foreign bank cards ,48 sim cards contravention of the telecommunications act which is indicative that he is operating in a syndicate of organised criminal gangs.

“This is a high security case if the same courts sent Job Sikala for utterances as a security risk and was in prison for a longtime, honestly Neville is a high national, regional and international security risk considering all the apparatus suggestive of international crimes/insurgency.

” Therefore this case of Neville Mutsvangwa should not be treated with urgency but due investigative/ intelligence gathering processes should be prioritised. Given the apparatus which were at his disposal, the case should be multi national.

“Has the Zimbabwean Republic Police made a notification to the InterPol regional office ?

“The most disturbing national security risk about Neville Mutsvangwa is the fact that he was found with an Estonian ID which was NEVER declared to the Zimbabwe immigration and border security.

“Neville Mutsvangwa is a person of high security risk and interest considering that Estonia is infamous for its Albanian/Russian mafia known for notorious international arms trafficking , drugs, human trafficking, prostitution and money laundering gangs.

“I hope the CIA will not be interested in this case and our nation find itself in the same situation as Nicaragua/Panama and Congo in the late 1990s. Are Zimbabweans citizens safe considering how greedy the Mutsvangwas are and placing the country at high risk?

“Christopher and Monica Mutsvangwa they need to be interrogated as well.

” Arrest Chris and Monica Mutsvangwa to answer questions for the money laundering and Estonian ID as it is apparent as long money is involved,they will not stop at even putting the nation in jeopardy. Our nation must not be a thugs paradise,” said Mujati.
