Harare magistrate Stanford Mambanje has varied the reporting conditions for former Health and Child Care Minister Obadiah Moyo.
The former minister has been reporting three times a week and he will now report once a week every Friday.
Moyo was also reporting at the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission offices.
The former minister said reporting three times every week has become a burden since the State has not furnished him with a trial date.
“The accused person had demonstrated his willingness to stand trial by abiding to his reporting conditions despite the State failing to furnish him with a trial date,” Mambanje ruled.
The former minister is facing criminal abuse of office for his alleged involvement in NatPharm’s unprocedural contract approval with Drax International LLC to supply medicines and surgical sundries.
