Former Air Zimbabwe chief operations officer, Simba Chikore, has been summoned back in court to answer to allegations of hiring security services from Safeguard Security company in 2017 without following proper tender procedures.
Chikore who is also the son-in-law to the late former President Robert Mugabe is today expected to appear at the Harare Magistrates’ Court for trial on criminal abuse of duty as a public officer.
He is alleged to have hired the security services for US$16 445 instead of the recommended US$10 000.
Chikore faced same accusations in 2018 with the special anti-corruption unit probing him after a report was lodged implicating him to forgery and abuse of office at state-owned Zimbabwe Airways.
