President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s son, Emmerson Tanaka Mnangagwa, reportedly lost US$1 000 to a bogus wedding garments supplier whom he had contracted to supply suits ahead of his wedding on 25 August 2019.
The accused, Samson Mavhunga (31) of Hillside, Harare, promised to deliver five men’s suits from Italy two weeks before the wedding.
Mavhunga reportedly charged US$3 500 and Mnangagwa paid US$1 500 deposit, but nothing was delivered.
According to a report by The Herald, Mavhunga appeared before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga on 22 April this year and was charged with fraud and was remanded out of custody to May 7 on $1 000 bail.
Meanwhile, a report by NewsDay says Mavhunga appeared before magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti yesterday (16 September) and was remanded to September 22 for trial.
