Controversial businessman and former Zimbabwe Warriors fitness trainer Temba Mliswa is expected to stand trial next week on allegations of attempting to wrest a vehicle accessory company from Harare businessman Paul Westwood.
Mliswa will appear before Harare regional magistrate Morgan Nemadire to answer to charges of threats of violence against Westwood.
When Mliswa appeared on his initial remand at the magistrate courts, three months ago, facing allegations of fraud and extortion, his lawyer Charles Chinyama argued that his client was innocent and never committed the alleged offence.
Chinyama indicated that Mlsiwa owned shares in Noshio Investment but Westwood was trying to outwit him out of his shares in the company.
The state alleges that sometime last year, Mliswa mobilised youths to prevent Westwood from visiting his company in Msasa claiming total ownership. Mliswa denies the allegations.
Mliswa is currently on remand on several other charges that sprouted soon after the Westwood case.
One of the cases involves the alleged theft of six 60KVA generators from farms around Karoi. He denies the charges.
Last month, Mliswa was convicted by a Karoi magistrate on six counts of assaulting his farm workers whom he accused of stealing chemicals. He was fined $350.
