Vehicle smuggler in court



A HARARE man appeared in court on Wednesday facing allegations of smuggling posh vehicles from South Africa.

“Respondents, who are defrocked former members of the church had taken over one of the buildings at the shrine. They evinced the intention of starting major construction works at the shrine commencing January 31, 2022, without the consent of the church. The applicants acted with urgency and filed an urgent chamber application the very same day,” Mahachi submitted.

“Respondents have marked out certain areas of the shrine land for trenching and have indicated that building materials and more workers will arrive…the respondents have signalled their serious intent by placing an advance team that will lead the construction work in this building, without the consent of the church. They have actually changed windows and put a new door to an existing building.”

Police and Zimra loss control officers raided the company premises and recovered the vehicle.
