Sekesai Makwavarara was arrested by the anti-corruption commission on Monday night while she was at her Rafingora farm.

She is facing charges of criminal abuse of office after allocating a US$80 million tender to Olgar Investments to construct Airport Road without taking due diligence.

She will be jointly charged with Tendai and Michael Mahachi who are already on remand on the same charges.

Makwavarara is the former deputy mayor and acting mayor of Harare. She began her work for council in 2002 for Mabvuku as a member of the Movement for Democratic Change party. Between 2003 and 2008, she was Harare City Council Commission Chair after the Local Government Minister fired the then Executive Mayor Elias Mudzuri.

    This is Ken Sharpe here, the executive chairman and CEO of Augur investments Ukraine and West Properties. My businesses and I have , at all times, conducted our affairs with the government of the country represented by the hon min chombo and the city of Harare , represented by the town clerk – Tendai Mahachi, in an open and transparent manner.
    Recent politically motivated attacks on me, my businesses and my business associate – Michael van blerk , are politically motivated and orchestrated by the corrupt zanu pf regime led by Mnangagwa.

    Are you the same Ken Sharpe that was expelled from Peterhouse School for theft circa 2001 ? It seems you have been stealing for your entire life !! You are in bed with all the corruption that is ZANU-PF.

    Augur investment company belongs to a dodgy individual- Kenneth Sharpe together with a former minister of the local government- chombo. Sharpe is wanted by the anti corruption commission in Zimbabwe and has subsequently run away from the country and is currently in hiding in Estonia , U.K. and Ukraine. He illegally transferred millions of $$ from Zimbabwe while we are suffering here. Come back “home” you coward and face the music.
