The Anti-Corruption Special Unit (ACSU) said it will launch an appeal against Wicknell Chivayo’s acquittal in the $5,6 million fraud case involving Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC)’s Gwanda solar project.
Chivayo and his company, Intratrek, were acquitted of any criminal liability. He won his case after the High Court upheld his application for exception to the fraud charges following his application for review of the trial court’s decision in November last year.
ACSU head Mr Thabani Mpofu told The Herald yesterday that they will be challenging the High Court decision to acquit Chivayo under the circumstances of the case taking into account the relief sought by the accused and the stage it has reached, is unprecedented.
