Justice Musakwa ordered the 2 to deposit US$100 with the Clerk of Court at Zvishavane Magistrate’s court and to stay at their given addresses.

The duo was also ordered to report at Zvishavane Police every Friday and not to apply for any travel document until the appeal is finalised.

They were also ordered not to interfere with any state witnesses.

Allegations on the 2 arose in August last year when they were arrested on allegations of soliciting for a US$50 bribe from Mclean Zhou in order to influence the outcome of his case.
