Former Zim minister granted bail

10 January 2019 | Misdaad
Zimbabwean opposition politician and former energy and power development minister Elton Mangoma, who was arrested on charges of criminal abuse of office, appeared in court in Harare on Tuesday.

Mangoma was arrested on Monday together with two other ZESA Holdings officials by the country's anti-corruption unit, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC). They spent the night in the Malbereign police cells.

Former MDC-T member, ZESA CEO Josh Chifamba and Zesa Enterprise managing director Tererai Mutasa appeared before Magistrate Ruramai Chitumbura, who released them on US$1 000 bail each. They were ordered to surrender their passports and report to the police once a week.

They must also continue to reside at the addresses given to the court until the finalisation of the matter.

The case was postponed to 29 January.

Mangoma, Chifamba and Mutasa are accused of awarding a contract to a South Korean company in October 2011 without a tender process. As a result, the State contends, the power utility was prejudiced to the tune of US$850 000.

The State alleges that Mangoma connived with Chifamba to "unlawfully and intentionally do that which was contrary to or inconsistent with his duties as a public officer by approving a business plan on the proposed switchgear technology transfer agreement between Techpro Company of South Korea and ZESA Enterprises, a subsidiary of ZESA Holdings, without going through the tender procedures for the purpose of avoiding a competitive bidding process, thereby showing favour to Techpro Company of South Korea". - NAMPA/ANA
