HH 184-18 TINEYI JAKOPO versus THE STATE

TINEYI JAKOPO

versus

THE STATE

 

 

HIGH COURT OF ZIMBABWE

BHUNU J

HARARE, 23 March 2018

 

 

Bail Application

 

Applicant in person

T. Kasema, for the respondent

 

 

BHUNU J: The applicant is jointly charged with others for fraud.  On 2 March 2018 I granted him a consent order for bail in the following terms:

 

“IT IS ORDERED BY CONSENT THAT:

 

1.      Applicant deposits with the Clerk of Court Harare  the sum of $200.00

2.      He continues to reside at 6191 - 155 Street Kuwadzana 5 Harare.

3.      Applicant reports at Kuwadzana police Station twice per week on Mondays and Fridays until this matter is finalised.

4.      Not to interfere with witnesses”.

 

Despite that order he was not released from custody because of an alleged

confusion in the spelling of his name. He has now submitted an affidavit in which he avers that at the Magistrates Court his name was recorded as Tineyi Jakopo whereas at the High Court his name is recorded as Tineyi Jacob.

What the applicant is saying is however not borne out by the record before me. The

High court record before me B 561/17 and all the documents except one therein the name of the applicant is recorded at the High court as Tineyi Jakopo. The exceptional document bears the case number B717/15. There are 3 applicants for bail on that document namely:

 

1.      Madzudzo Mudzimba

2.      Tineyi Jacob and

Rangarirai Katsande
