Pethwell Kanjanda (39) who is Manicaland Provincial Affairs minister Mandi Chimene’s son-in-law, was remanded out of custody to July 14 when he appeared before magistrate Perseverance Makala facing fraud charges after he reportedly sold two fake stands to Fred Rowai Chatora.
The court heard that in May last year Kanjanda approached Chatora saying that he was selling stands at Forbes border post on behalf of Chimene. Kanjanda allegedly went on to show Chatora two stands; one measuring 1 800 and the other 2 100 square metres. Chatora allegedly paid $2 210 to Kanjanda as deposit for the two stands which he valued at at $1 200 and $1 510 respectively.
Kanjanda allegedly gave Chatora two receipts with serial numbers 001503 and 001502 inscribed “Government of Zimbabwe Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development in conjunction with the Ministry of Lands”.
