Harare Mayor Councillor Herbert Gomba was on Tuesday arrested on allegations of criminal abuse of office connected with the sale of stands.
A Zim Morning Post report claims that Gomba was picked up by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) and spent the night in the police cells.
Gomba is likely to appear before Harare Magistrates’ Court this morning.
It is alleged that Gomba was involved in the illegal creation and sale of stands, with irregularities in the approval of plans and production of fraudulent layout plans prejudicing the Harare city council of thousands of dollars.
Senior officials in the council, including Edgar Dzehonye, have appeared in court, to answer to charges of criminal abuse of office.
