Trauma Centre bosses want passports back


Three Trauma Centre Hospital bosses, Jeremy Darrol Stewart Sanford, Paul Stefanos Stevenson and Mavis Mushonga, appeared at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts on Friday last week seeking temporary release of their passports to enable them to spend the holidays with their families outside the country.

The trio is facing fraud charges involving $5, 3 million and $501 000 respectively.

The application was deferred to today after senior prosecutor Obi Mabahwana indicated the Attorney-General’s Office representative, Edmore Nyazamba, who was supposed to deal with the matter, had other commitments.

The defence also hinted it would make an application for refusal of further remand today.

Sanford, a South African national who is also chief executive officer of Sable Mining Africa, was released on $1 500 bail on a charge of fraud and theft involving $5,3 million.

As part of his bail conditions, Sanford was ordered to surrender his British and South African passports to reside at 32 Rolf Avenue Chisipite, Harare, to surrender title deeds to his Zimbabwean company known as Tunsgate Properties and not to interfere with State witnesses.

Mushonga and Stevenson were granted $500 and $1 000 bail respectively and ordered to surrender their passports and to report at Avondale and Rhodesville police stations, respectively.

The duo was charged for allegedly swindling Trauma Centre owner, Vivek Savji Solanki of $501 000.
