$192 000 ZRP swindle trial date set

HARARE - The trial date for Harare businessman and gospel musician Herman Chimusoro  facing charges of swindling the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) of $192 000 has been set.

Magistrate Donald Ndirowei set the trial date for Chimusoro, who is currently in remand prison, for February 26.

Chimusoro, who imports and sells music instruments, is alleged to have converted $192 000 received from ZRP Staff College for purchase of music instruments to his own use.

Prosecutor Sharon Mashavira alleged that sometime in May last year, police chief superintendent Marange wanted to purchase musical instruments for the ZRP Staff College.

Marange reportedly engaged Chimusoro and was charged $192 000 which he paid prior to the importation of the instruments.

Chimusoro converted the money to personal use, the court heard.

When Marange made follow ups, he was given eight speakers and later told by Chimusoro that he had squandered the cash.

Chimusoro was subsequently arrested.
