High Court to hear Turnall bosses' graft case

HARARE - Three Turnall Holdings bosses facing $2,4 million fraud charges will now be indicted for trial at the High Court after authorities noted that the prejudice involved was substantial.

This was said by prosecutor Michael Reza when Abel John Jere, Edwin Kondo, Francis Chigwedere and Elizabeth Mawukwa appeared before Harare regional magistrate Noel Mupeiwa yesterday.

“This matter was supposed to commence trial today but the National Prosecuting Authority has made a decision that accused persons should be indicted for trial at the High Court. Accused persons will be referred back to the remand court,” Reza said.

The matter was remanded to January 31.

The quartet and Robert Dube, who is now deceased, allegedly held a meeting with Adam Muhita, the managing director of Auto Control Private Limited and misrepresented that they had been authorised by Turnall Holdings board of directors to access their bonuses through his company. Jere allegedly instructed Muhita to raise fictitious proforma invoices purporting  he had provided services to Turnall Holdings.

On several occasions, Jere caused money to be transferred from Turnall Holdings bank accounts into Muhita’s Barclays bank account.
