Musengezi remanded in custody

A Zanu PF member Sybeth Musengezi has been remanded in police custody pending finalisation of his bail hearing.

Sybeth (37) appeared before Harare Magistrate Mrs Yeukai Dzuda, on allegations of using a fake address to join ZANU PF for personal gains.

According to court papers, on an unknown date in 2012,  Musengezi, Allen Chisuko and Taurai Mutimbanyoka allegedly misrepresented to Zanu PF that they resided at House Number 4315 Hatcliffe Extension, Harare.

Musengezi was not asked to plead to the charges.

The State led by Mr Anesu Chirenje and Mr George Manokore opposed his bail application saying he was likely to evade trial.
