Wicknell Chivayo’s trial on bribery charges failed to start yesterday after his lawyer, Advocate Lewis Uriri, failed to attend court as he was committed at the High Court.
Chivayo allegedly transferred $10 000 into former Zimbabwe Power Company chairperson Stanley Kazhanje’s bank account, to influence him not to cancel a 100MW solar project tender awarded to his company, Intratrek Zimbabwe. Chivayo appeared before Harare magistrate Mrs Lucy Mungwari who deferred the matter to April 15 for trial commencement.
Advocate Sylvester Hashiti who stood in for Advocate Lewis Uriri told the court that his fellow colleague was committed with another matter at the High Court and so could not attend court.
