Former cabinet minister Supa Mandiwanzira, who was arrested yesterday, appeared in court today at the Harare Magistrates Court, and was granted US$2000 bail.

The Nyanga South legislator is facing two counts of criminal abuse of office where he allegedly awarded a contract to Megawatt Company without going to tender and directed NetOne to pay US$4 million for the service and US$1 million for consultancy..

Mandiwanzira is also alleged to have unprocedurally seconded Tawanda Chinembiri to the POTRAZ board without following the required due process which prejudiced the telecommunications regulator of US$35 000 through allowances drawn by Chinembiri..
