CHIREDZI – Two Chiredzi based cops under Minerals and Border Control Unit have appeared before Chiredzi Magistrate Geraldine Mutsoto for allegedly getting bribes that were sent through Ecocash.
The bribe was allegedly to grease their hands so that they don't impound a cross border vehicle.
Tenson Chipembere and Cleopas Nhamburo who are both based at Chiredzi Police Station appeared in court last Friday.
It is the State case that on December 29, 2016 Samuel Moyo`s Mecedes Benz Sprinter which was coming from South Africa was impounded by Chipembere, Nhamburo and Cst Tinashe Chapungu at Chisase Business Centre after the driver failed to produce sufficient declaration papers for the grocery which he was carrying.
The vehicle was driven to Chiredzi Police Station for further investigations. While at the station Chapungu received $50 in his ecocash account from Moyo instructing him to release his vehicle and this prompted Chapungu to make an official report against Moyo.
During the investigations Moyo revealed that he had been previously depositing money on demand into Ecocash accounts for Chipembere and Nhamburo who were in the company of Chapungu whenever they impound his vehicle. Moyo went on to supply three account numbers where he used to deposit money. Printouts which amount to $302 of previous Econet Wireless transactions were produced.
The two represented by Mugiya made an application for exception which seeks to attack the legitimacy of the charge. They said the charge is fraught with irregularities and unlawfulness which makes it incapable of allowing a competent prosecution. They also challenged the way they were arrested and also cited that no warned and cautioned statements were ever recorded from them. However, the State challenged the application for exception and the ruling was granted in favour of the State. The trial will begin on November 27,
Chiedza Muhwandavaka prosecuted.
