Chombo, ZRP and Zimra ordered to release Mozambican businessman’s vehicles

Home Affairs minister Ignatius Chombo, the Zimbabwe Republic Police and the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) have been ordered to release the vehicles of a Mozambican businessman impounded after his arrest for alleged possession of army regalia early this year.

Mozambican safari manager Stephen Boshoff and his companions Karl James Landrey, Lovemore Damiano and Kefasi Tetellelle were arrested in Plumtree for alleged smuggling when they entered Zimbabwe through the Mphoengs border post, travelling in two South African registered vehicles carrying 22 camouflage uniforms and 22 camouflage belts and 26 cases of bottled water, among other items. Following their arrests, their vehicles and military fatigue were confiscated.

Even after charges were withdrawn against them, the police and Zimra refused to release their vehicles, prompting Boshoff to file an urgent chamber application seeking the release of the vehicles and goods, citing the act as unlawful. On March 16, Bulawayo High Court judge Justice Nicholas Mathonsi ruled in Boshoff’s favour, ordering the parties concerned to release the confiscated goods and vehicles to the owner.
