BUHERA- A man from Muzivi village under Chief Nyashanu has appeared before Murambinda Resident Magistrate Dennis Mangosi for allegedly cutting 60 tonnes of poles from trees in the area without clearance from either the village head or the Environmental Management Authority.
He used the poles which would fill three haulage truck loads to fence a 5-hectare piece of land.
Thedeous Mapuranga (32) is being charged with removing of any tree or forest produce. He pleaded not guilty insisting that he had permission from the village head.
He also says that the area from which he cut the trees belonged to his father.
State witness Jeremiah Bako (38) who is employed by Hwedza Rural District Council as an Environment Officer said that the accused had no permit from either EMA or the village head Tonderai Muzivi. The matter was reported by Shingirai Dzvairo the local councillor.
Bako told the court that they found the newly cut down poles which were fencing a 5 hectare area. The poles were closely knit together not leaving any space between them.
The matter was postponed to August 18, 2017.
