Harare Magistrate Hoseah Mujaya has set November 23 as the trial date for former Finance minister Ignatius Chombo and his three accomplices, Kudzanai Chipanga, Innocent Hamandishe and Mathew Nleya who were arrested in a case in which they are accused of wearing Zanu-PF party regalia without authority. The state is alleging that the four are expelled members of Zanu-PF who took photographs of themselves wearing headgear (caps) inscribed “ED” and “Kutonga Kwaro” and an embroidered Zanu PF flag.
Chombo will also stand trial for contravening sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act on the 23rd of November 2018. He is alleged to have defrauded the City of Harare of property worth $900 000 together with former local government ministry employees Lazarus Chimba, Rejoice Pazvakavambwa and Psychology Chiwanga.
