Defence And War Veterans Ministry Boss Up For Defrauding Government Of Over $300K

Two senior officials in the Ministry of Defence and War Veterans, Peter Muchakazi the Director of Procurement and Kunofiwa Mervyn Madondo an accountant on Thursday appeared before Harare Magistrates’Courts facing fraud charges.

The duo reportedly made false claims that Defence House had received cleaning services from Maids on Wheels (Pvt) Ltd between March and June last year.

Muchakazi is said to have produced fake invoices which saw the ministry losing more than RTGS300 000.

Magistrate Francis Mapfumo granted Muchakazi ZWL5 000 bail while Madondo paid ZWL3 000.

Meanwhile, Danison Muvandi with whom the pair connived with to dupe the government is still at large.

The development comes at a time when president Emmerson Mnangagwa has announced that his administration will take stern action against corruption which is rampant in the country.
