Supa Mandiwanzira’s Accuser Reward Kangai Freed On $800 Bail

Former NetOne CEO Reward Kangai appeared before Harare magistrate Ms Rumbidzai Mugwagwa facing 21 counts of criminal abuse of office charges. Kangai is being accused of hand-picking his relatives and close associates for contracts to erect the company’s base stations before paying them rentals in advance.

He was remanded to January 31 on $800 bail and was ordered to surrender his passport, report to the police once a week and not to interfere with witnesses. His lawyer Mr Nyasha Munetsi said there were no reasonable grounds for Kangai’s arrest arguing that the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) had not carried out proper investigations.

It is the State’s case that Kangai showed favour to Bopela Family Trust by authorising the advance rental payment of $10 500, which covered a period of 21 months. Richwood Sports Club was paid $33 000, which covered a period of five years, while Avondale Christian Church was paid $27 000, which covered three years. It is alleged that house No. 514 Chipembere Road, Windsor Park in Ruwa, Harare was paid $5 400 when NetOne has no provision for advance rental payments.
