State Challenges Chivayo’s Acquittal In $5,6 Million Fraud Case

State prosecutors have filed a notice of appeal against businessman Wicknell Chivayo’s acquittal by the High Court in a $5,6 million fraud involving the Gwanda solar project.

Chivayo and his company, Intratrek Zimbabwe, were last week cleared of all charges. Justice Owen Tagu ruled that Chivayo and his company had no criminal case to answer as the dispute was contractual and warned that his prosecution could scare away investors.  The State on Thursday filed a notice for leave to appeal at the Supreme Court. It is seeking to overturn the decision by the High Court arguing it has prospects of success on appeal.

Anti-Corruption Special Unit director Mr Tabani Mpofu confirmed that the prosecution has filed a notice seeking leave to appeal at the Supreme Court
