Biti granted $5000 bail, back in court this Friday

MDC Alliance co-principal Tendai Biti has been granted $5000 bail after appearing at the Harare Magistrates’ Court late Thursday noon accused of announcing results of the just ended presidential elections in contravention of the country’s electoral laws.

Harare magistrate Francis Mapfumo also ordered the firebrand politician to surrender both his passport and title deeds to his Chisipite house.

Biti was further ordered not to interfere with witnesses and to report twice everyday at the CID Law and Order Division.

The former finance minister is set to appear in court again this Friday.
