Mliswa freed on bail

HARARE - Former Zanu PF Mashonaland West provincial chairperson Temba Mliswa —  arrested on allegations of being in illegal possession of rifles, has been freed on $200 bail.

His lawyer Charles Chinyama confirmed to the Daily News yesterday that the Chinhoyi Magistrates’ Court had ordered the release of his client.

Magistrate Ignatius Mugova ordered Mliswa to surrender his passport, reside at the address he gave to the court, not to interfere with witnesses and not to visit Spring Farm within the next six months, as part of his bail conditions.

The Hurungwe West legislator, was

arrested last Saturday on theft charges, after some rifles were reportedly found stashed in a trench at his Spring Farm fowl-run.

The firearms included a 303 rifle, Patrone .22 rifle, Kal .22 I.F.B rifle, BSA 7.57mm rifle, K217.62mm rifle, 458 Witworth

Express rifle, Vanguard 12 Bore shotgun and a 12 Bore double barrel shotgun.

Prosecutors claim Mliswa stole the firearms from Summerhill Farm in Mhangura in 2007.

The State further claim the guns belong to then farm owner Myles Walter Hall.

The prosecution team had opposed his release on bail.
