- Chief Chirumhanzu born Gerald Mudzengi who was supposed to appear at Gweru Provincial Court last Thursday to answer to cases of stock theft and contempt of court did not turn up and the case will be heard on a new date.
There are conflicting statements on the reasons why he failed to turn up for the court hearing with some sources saying he was away attending a traditional chiefs' meeting in Bulawayo while others said he merely absconded.
However, The Mirror established that the court was not furnished with the reasons for his absence and there was serious consideration for the chief to be issued with a warrant of arrest.
It is also understood that State witnesses did not attend.
Chief Chirumanzu is facing three charges of stock theft and two of contempt of court. There are six State witnesses lined against Chief Chirumanzu and the cases emanate from allegations that the chief made newly resettled farmers pay fines for various crimes although the chief did not have jurisdiction in resettlement areas.
He allegedly impounded cattle from those he accused of committing crimes.
On the contempt of court charges, Chief Chirumanzu allegedly refused to return cattle that he was ordered by the court to give back to the owners.
