AirZim hearings start


THE Wellington Pasipanodya tribunal presiding over disciplinary hearings of five suspended senior Air Zimbabwe managers facing charges for inappropriately awarding Navistar Insurance
Brokers to cover the airline’s fleet commenced yesterday, but
immediately adjourned as the parties failed to agree on the processes and structure of the hearing.


The hearings against the fingered senior executives were based on the BCA forensic audit into the affairs of the troubled airline particularly insurance which the audit concluded was inflated.

The suspended executives include acting group chief executive Innocent Mavhunga, company secretary Grace Pfumbidzayi, finance director Nicholas Mujeri, finance manager Patience Tichagwa and human resources manager Oswald Madziva.

Pasipanodya yesterday agreed with the defence counsels that the hearings should be kept out of the media.

Johnlife Mawire representing Pfumbidzayi confirmed the development.
Caleb Mucheche was not immediately available to confirm who among the suspended officials he was representing at the hearing.

However, NewsDay is in possession of correspondence between the suspended officials and AirZim board chair Ozias Bvute requesting to be furnished with some documents about the insurance transactions between 2009 and March 2013.
