Zanu PF MP in court after selling non-existent stands

The trial Zanu PF Chirumanzu South legislator, Innocent Pedzisai, who is facing fraud allegations after he sold non-existent residential stands to unsuspecting homeseekers, was postponed to March 9 by Harare magistrate, Nomsa Sabarauta to allow the new prosecutor ample time to study the case.

The legislator, who was the owner of the now-defunct Innop Housing Development Co-operative, is facing three counts of fraud allegations, after he allegedly sold non-existent residential stands to three people prejudicing them of $7 000. Pesdzisai sold the same piece of land to Gibson Chibvongodze, Beavan Mubaiwa and Trymore Mutanga. In the first instance Chibvongodze deposited $2 020 into Pedzisai’s housing co-operative’s bank account and he was allocated the stand and also issued with a copy of title deed, which was in the name of Marimba Residential Properties Limited.

A few weeks later from the date of allocation, Chibvongodze allegedly discovered that someone had put a structure on the same piece of land. Pedzisai allegedly failed to give a satisfactory explanation, leading Chibvongodze to report the matter to the police. Pedzisai used the same method to dupe the other two.
