A video has emerged from Harare, Zimbabwe showing the country's former Finance Minister Igantius Chombo walking in leg irons after his arrest on fraud charges.

Chombo, who was charged on Saturday with corruption including an attempt to defraud the central bank in 2004, claims he was kidnapped by armed men during the middle of the night during the operation to oust Robert Mugabe.

Also shown in the video in leg irons are influential Zanu-PF youth leaders Kudzai Chipanga and Innocent Hamandishe.

All three men were in the so-called G40 faction of Zanu-PF which stands accused, along with former First Lady Grace Mugabe, of exerting too much influence over Robert Mugabe.

The faction was also against new President Emmerson Mnangagawa succeeding Mugabe.
