Ex-minister removed from remand


FORMER Cabinet minister Nicholas Goche was yesterday removed from remand when he appeared at the Bindura Magistrates Court on charges of stealing 18 steers valued at US$18 000 from a Shamva farmer.


Goche (79) appeared before provincial magistrate Tinashe Ndokera.

The complainant, Honest Mupanedengu, did not show up and was issued with a warrant of arrest.

The State alleged on November 13, 2018, Goche sold 40 beasts to Mupanedengu who paid for the cattle through a bank transfer and collected 22 steers, leaving behind 18 steers.

On an unknown date last year, Goche allegedly disposed of the 18 steers worth US$18 000 without Mupanedengu’s consent.

When Mupanedengu approached Goche to collect the remaining beasts, the ex-minister indicated that he had sold them, leading to his arrest.
