Minister's wife loses case

HARARE - A Harare man, accused of theft and malicious damage to property belonging to former Public Works deputy minister and non-constituency senator Guy Georgias’ wife, has been acquitted.

Jane Linda Georgias had filed criminal charges against Kuda Nyambo, before the court cleared him at the close of the State’s case citing lack of sufficient evidence.

In his application for discharge, the 40-year-old man said, “The complainant (Jane) was simply concerned about milking money from the accused with no regard to the repairs made to the house.”

He said the State had failed dismally to prove its case, adding that no evidence had been adduced to prove the essential elements.

“In fact the complainant’s evidence is full of inconsistencies and naked lies, which complainant herself cannot even explain. The criminal proceedings against the accused are spurious and clothed with ill-intent as they are designed to harass the accused because of the disputes that existed between the parties…,” he said.

According to State papers, Nyambo entered into a lease agreement with Jane to occupy her Glen Lorne house at a monthly rental of $3 000.

The State claimed Nyambo vandalised and stole property worth $88 800, during the time he stayed at the house, leading to criminal charges being laid against him.

Nyambo, however, denied the charge saying he entered the house in a deplorable state, accusing Jane of reneging on the agreement.

The husband also thought the EU court can take such lies when he was trying to sue Britain and EU. Because they are pathological liars he lost the case so it runs in the family.
