    Zanu PF Mwenezi secretary steals from GMB


    MWENEZI – Prominent Zanu PF provincial secretary for transport and social welfare Renias Machoko has been ordered to do 210 hours of community service after he took 12 bags of grain from the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) without the requisite authority.
    He was also ordered to take back all the bags that he took from the State enterprise.
    Machoko was convicted of collecting 10x50kg bags of maize and 2x50kg bags of millet from GMB Rutenga on the guise that these would be used at a State function.
    The State said that Machoko found Warinda Kaurai the security guard manning at GMB and then collected the bags.
    Machoko took advantage of his party position to collect the bags for he opened the store room where the bags were stored without the authority of the GMB manager.
    He admitted in court that he took the grains without authorization but said he had powers from the party as he was the one who was supposed to organise the function.
    “I always go to GMB whenever there are such functions and get bags of maize,” said Machoko.
    Asked whether this was true, Tawanda Masiyambiri who is Rutenga GMB manager answered in the negative. Masiyambiri said if there are such functions, people from different departments make donations and the money will be used to buy the maize.
    When Social Welfare needs maize it informs the deport management in writing and Machoko did not produce any such documents up to the time of going to court.
    Magistrate Honesty Musiiwa said, “It was good to organize the function but procedure must be followed.  GMB accounts for any shortages so you were supposed to see the manager instead of seizing the grains by force from the security guards”.
    The accused was ordered to return the 12 bags that he confiscated because the gathering was not successful and nothing was recovered.
    He will do the community service at Rutenga ZRP.
