Nyanga South MP, Supa Mandiwanzira appears before the High Court today for allegedly breaching the Procurement Act.
The former ICT minister is facing charges of criminal abuse of office after he allegedly engaged Megawatt Energy, a South African based consultancy, to audit a deal between Net One and Huawei Technologies. The deal was worth US$218 954 843.00.
He is opposing trial magistrate Mr Elijah Makomo’s ruling which dismissed his application to be exonerated from charges of breaching procurement regulations.
Magistrate Makomo found out that Mandiwanzira could not have acted on behalf of NetOne which has its own directors and workers. Mandiwanzira argues that Net One was not a procurement entity.
