– A former Chiredzi lawyer, Andrew Hamandishe (39) has appeared before Magistrate Geraldine Mutsoto facing two counts of fraud after he allegedly collected money from clients and then failed to represent them.
Hamandishe allegedly defrauded Raviro Mukwande of Tshovani in Chiredzi after he indicated that he is into practice when he has allegedly been deregistered.
The State says at an unknown date but in the month of March 2016 that Mukwande approached Hamandishe to represent her in her case of theft at Chipinge Magistrate Court.
Hamandishe charged Mukwande $30 for opening a client file to which he was given. He later charged $28 for bus fare and an extra $2 for airtime. Upon arrival in Chipinge Hamandishe allegedly failed to represent Mukwande saying that he had something else to do.
He allegedly demanded a further $150 service fees which was paid to him through Farai Muchipi in batches of $50. On April 4, 2016 Mukwande realised that she had been duped and made a Police report leading to the arrest of Hamandishe.
On count two Tasunungurwa Chionioni of  Tshovani Chiredzi approached Hamandishe for legal assistance to apply for bail for his brother-in-law Johnson Zanga who was charged with domestic violence.
Hamandishe allegedly misrepresented himself as a registered legal practitioner. Hamandishe charged Chionioni $30 for transport costs to the High Court in Harare. The accused later charged $35 for appeal papers. The complainant later realised that they were no appeal papers and made a report to the Police.
Hamandishe is represented by Ross Chavi and will appear in court on 26 April for continuation of trial. David Tafangenyasha prosecuted.local news
