Bulawayo councillor Thobani Ncube was  arrested after allegedly  selling the same residential stand twice.  He appeared before West Commonage magistrate Mrs Trancy Dube facing a charge of fraud.  Ncube sold the stand he had bought under a discounted government facility.  He was remanded to 8 December for trial and granted  $100 bail.

Prosecutor Mr Mufaro Mageza told the court:

On an unknown date but in the period extending from July 25 to October 1 this year, the complainant met the accused person with the intention of buying a residential stand. The complainant paid $12 000 in instalments towards the purchase of the stand.

In November 2016, the complainant wanted to write up an agreement of sale, only to discover that the same stand had been sold to Mnvangeli Xaba.
