News:Kereke launches bail application. Hearing today

<vote /> Munyaradzi Kereke, who is serving an effective 10 years in jail for raping his 11-year-old niece, on Wednesday launched an application for bail pending appeal at the High Court. The bail hearing will be heard today. Kereke’s lawyers Mutandiro, Chitsanga and Associates, have hired Advocate Thabani Mpofu to argue the matter.

In an application filed in the High Court, Kereke wants the court to allow him to deposit with the clerk of court, Harare magistrate’s court the sum of $2 000. He also proposed to surrender title deeds of a single immovable property and passport to the clerk of court. In addition, he would be amenable to continue residing at number 12 St Andrews, Hatfield in Harare, until the finalisation of the appeal and other stringent conditions among others.

Kereke still insists that the charges he was convicted of were fabricated by the complainants’ maternal grandparents after he refused to pay their school fees arrears, but Mr Mupeiwa said at the time, the case was reported to the police, the arrears had already been settled.
