    Senior Mash East health officer to perform community service


    - Mashonaland East Provincial Health Service Administrator Pazwell Paziwero Mwazungunya has been convicted of criminal abuse of office but was acquitted of the main charge of fraud by a Chivhu Magistrate.
    Mwazungunya(42) was sentenced to perform 245 hours of community service at Marondera Police Station when he appeared in court on Friday.
    In passing sentence, Chivhu Resident Magistrate Archie Wochiwunga said Mwazungunya had already been found guilty during a Ministry of Health and Child Care disciplinary hearing and ordered to pay a fine of two months' salary.
    Mwazungunya appeared in court  last year  together with nine other staff members at Chivhu General Hospital  facing charges of defrauding  the hospital of more than $11 000. They were all found not guilty to the charge.
    It was the State case that on a date unknown to the prosecutor but between 2011 and January 9 2012, Mwazungunya was assigned to supervise the implementation of Targeted Rehabilitation Project by the then acting Provincial Medical Director Patience Dhliwayo.
    Audit investigations revealed that the accused persons used fake quotations to compete with genuine ones.
    Furthermore, the quoted prices were highly inflated as compared to the actual market prices.
    According to the investigating officer of the case, a CID member who was a State witness, the audit report was left at the CID offices anonymously.crime
