Ex-Minister Jason Machaya Re-Arrested On Fresh Charges

Former Midlands Provincial Affairs Minister Jason Machaya was rearrested on fresh charges while coming from hospital. He was detained at Mtapa Police Station.

A relative who spoke to The Chronicle said Machaya was only free for ten minutes as he checked out of hospital with a bail order. Said the relative:

Soon after being discharged, police details with fresh charges involving abuse of office were at the hospital entrance waiting to pounce on him. He was immediately escorted by the police to Whawha Prison to pick up his belongings and was detained at Mtapa Police Station in Gweru.

When contacted by The Chronicle, Machaya’s lawyer, Mr Hillary Garikayi of Garikayi and company, confirmed Machaya’s latest arrest but said he was still to get details of the new charges. Acting police spokesperson for Midlands province Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende was not available for a comment yesterday. However, sources told The Chronicle that Machaya was facing new charges involving the allocation of land and residential stands in Shurugwi and Zvishavane.
