Suspended Zimbabwe Miners Federation boss Henrietta has taken her bid for freedom to the High Court.

Rushwaya was denied bail on Friday by Magistrate Ngoni Nduna, who ruled that she and her co-accused have potential to abscond or interfere with evidence.

But Rushwaya believes Nduna erred in his judgement.

This morning her lawyer Advocate Tapson Dzvetero filed an appeal at the High Court, challenging the ruling by the magistrate’s court.

“We are challenging the judgement, we don’t believe that the magistrate was correct. I have been instructed to approach the High Court to make an appeal. We have just filed in our papers.

“With how bail cases are handled its most likely that she will appear in court on Wednesday or Thursday this week”, said Advocate Dzvetero.

Rushwaya together with her co accused Steven Tserayi, Raphios Mufandauya and Gift Karanda were denied bail.

The four are jointly charged with businessman Ali Mohammed who was granted ZWL$100 000 bail.

In granting Mohammed bail the magistrate said charges against him were “confusing” and he was only in court as a result of alleged incrimination by Rushwaya which she has since denied.
