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.
