    Warrant of arrest against Tiringindi accusers


    – Three key State witnesses who have pressed charges of disorderly conduct and malicious damage to property against prominent human rights activist Prosper Tiringindi have been issued with a warrant of arrest.
    The three were issued with the warrant of arrest after they failed to turn up for court hearing on several occasions.
    The State witnesses are Grace Tambo, the Finance Administrator at Zambuko Trust who is alleged to be missing since February this year. It is also understood that she is the one who raised the charges against Masvingo Residents' Trust members.  The other witnesses are Silivia Gorondondo, the Trust's branch manager and Bradley Sibanda, the loan officer.
    Tiringindi who is the chairman of Masvingo Residents Trust together with Ephraim Mutombeni and Elizabeth Manaviri were arrested for disorderly behavior and malicious damage to property after they demonstrated against alleged corruption and lack of transparency at Zambuko Trust. The bone of contention was a $10 000 loan facility that Zambuko got from the Germany City of Kermen which was intended to benefit the city's poor but was allegedly distributed in a non-transparent manner.
    The demonstrators accused Mayor Hubert Fidze and Town Clerk, Adolf Gusha of corrupt involvement in the fund which the two vehemently refuted.
    They also demanded the resignation of Fidze and Gusha.
    The three were accused of having damaged a chair at Zambuko and of disorderly behavior during the demonstrations.
    Provincial magistrate Langton Ndokera refused further remand of Tiringindi and his co-accused after the State witnesses continuously failed to show up at the courts on the set dates.
    The MRT members are being represented by Martin Mureri of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights.
