Update On Woman Arrested For Possession Of Crocodile Skins

The state has withdrawn its case against Vimbai Dzingirai who was arrested last month after she was allegedly found in possession of 52 crocodile skins at her home without a permit.

The detectives took the skins, pending the availing of the permit, but Dzingirai failed to produce the permit and became evasive.

Vimbai Dzingirai appeared before Harare magistrate, Yeukai Dzuda last month.

The state withdrew the case after Patience Gandiwa, the Parks and Wildlife Management Authority Acting Director-General wrote an affidavit swearing that Dzingirai is a client of the Authority who is a small-scale crocodile breeder.



Offices situated at Corner Borrowdale Road and Sandringham Drive represent Parks and Wildlife Management Authority as the Acting Director-General do hereby solemnly and sincerely swear/declare the following:

Duncan Andrew Wardley and his employee Vimbai Dzingirirai are clients of the Authority who are small-scale crocodile breeders. The two were erroneously arrested due to a technical glitch in our computer system. Payments were received by our Masvingo offices for the renewal of the permit for them to conduct their business. Due to a technical error from our offices such permits will be issued in retrospect.

I make the above statement conscientiously believing the same to be true.

  1. I smell the hide and behind of a rat in this story. You need to get to the bottom of who Duncan Andrew Wardley and his employee Vimbai Dzingirirai are, and who they are connected to in gvt and the PWMA. And to actually swear to such?!! Disgusting!!

    1. Why should we be connected to anyone in government yet our skins haven’t been released back to us yet? Why not explain the failed robbery the CID tried on us & why they still are holding our skins? Thieves masked as police go back to your handlers & tell them we are exposing everything no stone will be left. We are just law abiding citizens trying to do right in a struggling economy
