The trial of Intratrek MD and businessman Wicknell Chivhayo in which he is accused of swindling ZPC of US $5.6 million will resume in 2 weeks after the Supreme Court reversed his High Court acquittal, The Herald reports.
Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) has welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision and they reportedly indicated they wish to implement it to the best of their abilities.
SACU has also dismissed reports circulating that the charges will be dropped and said they are ready to proceed with the case:
These sentiments do not represent true facts as they stand. sacu is proceeding with prosecution of the accused person as has been directed by the Supreme Court. A number of witnesses will now be called to testify in this case.
The High court had previously absolved Chivhayo and his business of any wrongdoing in the power deal that never materialised.
