Breaking: Elton Mangoma arrested


MDC RENEWAL treasurer general Elton Mangoma was on Tuesday arrested by the Zimbabwe Republic Police Law and Order section for alleged criminal abuse of office during his tenure as Energy and Power Development minister.

Mangoma handed himself in at Harare Central Police after the police had indicated last week that they were looking for him.

His lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa said the police alleged that Mangoma directed a Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority managing director to cancel a tender and award the job to OK Zimbabwe.

  1. So which ZESA MD is this and what job was given to OK? We need to know? Does that mean Mavhaire might also be arrested for canceling a tender and awarding it to Powertel?

  2. The case is not making sense to me. Who is the complainant? Under what circumstances had they been awarded the tender. go is the manager? Why has the case taken this long to surface? There are more questions than answers here.

  3. No wonder why politicians in Zim are scared of retiring & would rather die in office. As soon as you lose political influence the guys come baying for your blood with real or imaginary criminal charges

  4. We know were the real criminal abuse of office is happening but of course some citizens are greater than others. No wonder corruption will not go away. Seka hako Vhudzijena.
