Prosper Dembedza Court Correspondent

The matter involving Henrietta Rushwaya and her alleged gold smuggling syndicate comprising of Pakistani businessman Ali Mohamed and two State security agents has been postponed to June 18 to allow time for the gold to be weighed.

Prosecutor Mrs Netsai Mushayabasa applied for the postponement saying she had spoken to the investigating officer who indicated that only the weighing process of the gold was left.

Mrs Mushayabasa told the court that the State would furnish the accused persons with a trial date then.

Rushwaya is jointly appearing at the Harare Magistrates’ Court along with Mohamed, Stephen Chenjerai Tserai, Raphios Mufandauya and Gift Karanda on smuggling, illegal possession of gold, criminal abuse of office and defeating the course of justice.

    Possibly bring in a scale from South Africa comrades. These problems with weighing a piece of metal or rock is very complicated science to ZANUPF prosecutors.
    Scales are scarce in ZW these days as some work on electricity and batteries and both those energy sources are in short supply today.
    The gold smuggler is of course a ZANUPF stalwart and her accomplice – the Pakistani fellow has already been released.
    Catch and release of criminals in ZW is almost a daily occurence if one is tied to the apron strings of ZANUPF.

    The freedom to plunder continues in the true ZANU style.

    Mark the instance AND PERSONALITIES for “The “People Versus ZANU” case.

    Mark my words, that case will come about.
